An "open cast on" is a method of casting on such that, later on, you can go back and continue knitting in the other direction.  If you use this method on a scarf, you will end up with two ends that are casted off instead of one cast-on edge and one cast-off edge.  Did that make sense?

Anyway, there are many different ways of making an open cast on edge.  

Invisible Cast On
Provisional (looped) cast on

html doesn't work in posts.

i learned to do this recently
piece of advice - if you get something daft by following the instructions, just look at the picture of what it's supposed to look like and try to make it look like that!
