Tutorial. The Frilled Cast On is extremely simple and gives a pretty, frilled edge that looks like crochet and blocks quite flat on a Stockinette Stitch piece. It is a good match for the Picot Bind Off, and is a nice alternative to Ribbing, Garter or Moss Stitch when you want an edging that is more decorative or delicate.

Pretty Cast On - PicnicKnits "You actually cast on 1/3 the number of stitches, using the long-tail method over two needles. Then in each stitch you work a (k, yo, k) to bring it up to the required number."
A Cable Cast On is a good way to cast on stitches in the middle of your knitting. Often a pattern asks you to be knitting along and then says, cast on some number of stitches. I almost always use a Cable Cast On in that situation. This example comes from our Baby Bloomers Project Journal.
