How to make a provisional cast on with waste yarn or circular needle

In this DROPS video we show two ways to make a provisional cast on where you afterward will have live sts to work the opposite way.

First we are casting on using a waste yarn, then we are casting on around the cable of a circular needle. When using the circular needle you can easily afterward just pull the needle through to knit position and start working the sts for a hem, cuff, border etc.
