The increase I’m showing you here can be used as a single or double increase. Like the knit-through-the-back increase, it makes new stitch(es) out of an existing stitch (make 1 is worked between stitches). The stitches, existing and new, can be either knit or purled, depending on your needs.
The crochet center cast-on is a way to create the initial set of stitches used for knitting from the center out. Stitches are cast on around a loop of yarn that can be cinched closed, instead of in a row that needs to be joined without twisting. With the circle already joined, double-pointed needles are less likely to fall out, making knitting from the center out just that much easier!
