I just realized that I've been recommending the wrong type of cast on for starting a sweater. What I should have said was use a cable cast on (instead of a chain cast on). Directions for the cable cast on can be found at : http://www.wonderful-things.com/newknit1.htm. The cable cast on is easy to do, doesn't twist much, and is fairly substantial. It's not too good, however, in places where one wants to pick up stitches -- such as at the underarm sleeve.
