Please explain to me how to cast on in the middle of the row.

It's a fairly common technique in knitting, there are many tutorials for it online, I found these ones the most clear here- https// == s-to-cast-on-in-the-middle-of-a-row-tutorial

this says it is for beginners. it would be helpful if you could supply instructions on how to cast off,, cast on in the middle of your work. a new knitter doesn't know how to do that. please add instructions. thank you

I have made keyhole scarves before so I know what they look like but I think a photo would be useful here. It is a simple pattern to follow and should work up quickly with the bulkier yarn and bigger needles. However not ready to knit it up yet but when I do I will have to supply a pattern.

Hello Tricia108, the photo for this pattern has been added. Our apologies for the inconvenience. -Editors of AllFreeKnitting
