How?  Flip over your work so that the needle with all the stitches on it is in your left hand.

Insert the empty right-hand needle into the stitch closest to the tip of the left-hand needle.  Purl, but don’t drop the stitch off the left-hand needle.  Transfer the newly made purl stitch from the right-hand needle to the left-hand needle by inserting the left-hand needle into the bottom of the new stitch on the right-hand needle by crossing the left-hand needle over in front of the newly made stitch and entering into the stitch from right to left.

The next stitch will be a knit stitch, so insert the empty right-hand needle into the next stitch on the left-hand needle as if to knit.  Knit the stitch but don’t drop it off the left-hand needle.  Transfer the newly made st onto the left-hand needle the same way as before.

Repeat these 2 cast-on sts 3 (3, 4, 4, 5, 5) more times.
