Hm. The backwards loop cast-on that I know (from the IK magazine) isn't like a knitted cast-on at all. It only uses one needle, and you just loop the yarn on it, twisting it as you do so, so that each loop holds the tail.

I imagine you can really use any cast-on, but the edges won't match up. I'm going to add an edging to my rug anyway, because I wasn't too careful about getting all the squares lined up perfectly, so that doesn't matter much to me.

Good luck finding the yarn! I know that my local Michael's carries Kitchen Cotton - maybe you can try calling around to some of the big general craft stores? Have you posted the array of colors for the rug? Looking forward to seeing it...
