Hard edged cast-ons in knitting are difficult to remove, so it's important to also know how to complete loose cast-ons that easily remove themselves from your knitting project. Loose cast-ons allow you to hold a knit in place so you can return to it later (so, for instance, you want to knit the sleeve of a sweater first and want the chest area, which you are currently knitting, to stay in place).
Knowing how to apply the right cast-on is integral to a cohesive knitting project, so watch this episode of Interweave with Eunny Jang to learn this loose provisional cast-on.
