How to CO in the middle of the project?

I am making a baby sweater and it says…

“… Knit to second marker, 51(60)sts. Cast on 2. Turn and purl to first marker, 31(37)sts. Cast on 2…”

How do I cast those 2 stitches on each side? :??

Well, I don’t know if it’s right, but I’ve always used an M1A or M1T increase which is just putting a loop over the needle a certain way. It’s always worked fine. I’m sure Ingrid has done this so I’ll be curious to see how she does it, too.

Ingrid showed me the backward loop cast on for my baby sweaterhere

Thank you!!!

I guess the backward loop is what I need to do…

Cant wait to see it finished!!!
