How about casting on in the middle of your row. I just had a pattern that you knitted 14, cast on 1 and knitted 14. I winged it but was wondering what was the correct way. I usually knit on when I cast on but couldn’t figure out how to do that in the middle of my work.
I would probably make a backward loop.

I like using the knit-on method in the middle of a row. The backward loop way tends to be loose.
