How to do a Cable Cast On

To do a cable cast on, you dip you needle between your first two stitches on
the round that you are about start and pull a loop of your working yarn though
the two stitches. Then you put the loop of working yarn that you have on your
needle onto the start needle at the beginning of the round. Then, reach between
the stitch you just cast on and the second stitch to your working yarn and pull
another loop through. Put it as the first stitch.
Then bind off 4 stitches and put the resulting loop back on the start needle.
Then do it again and again and again until the round is complete.
