I also cast on using two needles together to ensure that my stitches are not too tight. I then split my stitches symmetrically, back-and-forth, over 2 dpns; see photos. You can view a video of the doubled tail, long-tail cast on here: http://youtu.be/1itkz_TOyo4 Also feel free to use Judy's Magic Cast On (c) 2006 Judy Becker: http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/FEATmagiccaston.html Increases: The left and right lifted increases can be swapped for any type of increase you prefer, simply note that out of 1 stitch you will need to make stitches consistently, both left and right. Binding Off uses a variation of a standard 3-needle bind off.
