"Instructions:
Cast on: using provisional cast on, with contrast color waste yarn and crochet hook, chain 80. Using shawl yarn with small ball hanging as the tail, pick up and knit 69 sts in the bumps on the backside of the chains - 69 sts."

....what?  Huh  Sad
I know how to do provisional cast on and the chain stitch but.... how do i put them together? do i provisional cast on to the needle and the do a row of chain stitch and then continue with needles? or just do the chain and start with the needles???

I would just cast on 69 with a waste yarn of similar weight, knit 1 or 2 rows and then change to the main yarn - but I do have tendencies to cut corners, so maybe someone can confirm that this might work...? Wink

That's a description of the crochet cast on, where you wrap the yarn around the knitting needles after each chain.  There's a video of it out there somewhere (or search this board for other provisional cast on topics).

I like the provisional cast on on www.knittinghelp.co m/knitting/basic_techniques/ (scroll down).  It does not require a crochet hook.  If you use a slippery yarn, it's easier. Smiley
