I was is such a hurry to start an adorable baby hoodie, that I missed the instruction for casting on a provisional cast on! I'm over half way done with it -- do I pull it apart? Pick up the stitches from the right side, hood, left side then just pick up the bottom stitches? Help!

I'd say pick up and leave the cast on for anything thinner than worsted. Worsted and thicker I'd try to unpick the cast on, I hope you aren't using a bulky mohair yarn ;)

You get to do whatever you want!

If you are using a relatively thin yarn, picking up stitches from your cast-on won't make an uncomfortable ridge. You could turn this into a "design feature" by doing your pick-up so that the cast-on line is on the outside. Overcast it with contrasting yarn! Go wild! If you are using a thicker yarn, you might want to unpick your cast-on.
