Yes, I narrate part 1 and 2. I hope this is more helpful than the old versions.

This clip shows just one method of casting on and the set-up round. Part 2 shows working the pattern rounds.

This is a modified crochet cast-on, where there's a single chain stitch between each stitch on the needle. I misspoke in the video, it's not a very stretchy edge. It is slightly stretchy but very stable, and it is wide enough for the purpose of the piece. For something that would need to stretch freely, a tubular cast-on would be better.

I prefer to cast on an even number of stitches and increase to a multiple of 3 with the set-up round. It's a personal preference.

The pattern I'm using and noted on the blurry card in the background is the following:
Cast on an even number of stitches in Main Color (MC).
Set up round: (k1, yo, sl1) repeat to end.
r1) (CC): (yo, sl1, p2tog) repeat to end.
r2) (MC): (k2tog, yo, sl1) repeat to end.

I do not demonstrate binding off as any will do, dependent on what sort of edge one wants. The crochet hook is only necessary for casting on this way, and if crochet details are desired. I say it will be used later because I plan to add a crocheted scallop to the edge in order to bind off (which isn't shown).
