Middle East Wrap Cast-On (a.k.a Turkish Cast-On)

Snugly wrap the working yarn counterclockwise around two needles. Bring the yarn forward between needles, back to front (Figure 1). Knit across stitches on upper needle (Figure 2). Rotate the work and knit across the same number of stitches on the other needle (Figure 3). On the third row, pick up two stitches along each side (Figure 4).
