I've started the Fulled Lopi Tote by Hello Yarn.  It's worked from the top down and you bind off stitched for the handle then cast them back on to continue knitting.  I'm at the point now where I need to cast back on the stitches and after a few attempts (I used the cable cast on method) it just doesn't look right to me.  There's a big wonky hole in between where I had my stitches and where a casted them back on.  I tried looking for the video on knittinghelp.com but can't seem to find it right now.

Can anyone please help me with this?  Huh

Thank you in advance!  Smiley

Use the knit or cable cast on and if you have to pick up a st where it joins to keep from having a gap, do that. You can decrease on the next row to keep the st count the same.
