How to cast on these stitches?

I am making a baby sweater…the pattern says:

[COLOR=“DarkRed”]Divide for sleeves

k to first marker; remove it (remove all markers now, as you come to them), k 1. Now using a blunt needle and a length of scrap yarn, slip all the sts between here and the next marker onto the length of yarn to hold for the left sleeve. Cast onto the right tip of the needle 5 sts. and join to the back sts. K across the back sts to the next marker, k 1, slip all the sts between here and the next marker onto a length of yarn to hold for the right sleeve. Cast on 5 sts as before and join to front sts. K to end of row. [/COLOR]

How do I cast on 5 stitches to the right needle? :??

Put the right needle into the left hand, use the knitted cast on then switch it back to the right hand and knit the back sts (or front sts when you get to them).

Thank you, I will give it a try!

Yep, that looks much better…thank you!
