Special Notes:

  • Cable It: work sts out of order or use cable needle, if desired.
  • Customize It: easily customize the length by working fewer or more repeats.
  • Pair It: working On the Set as part of the large project in the Technicolor: Movie Night Collection?  Make sure scarf measures long enough to comfortably wrap around and tie.  For larger sizes, you may wish to work a longer length, which may need an additional skein.  For smaller sizes, you may wish to work a shorter length.
  • Slip It: slip as if to knit or slip as if to purl, whatever you find more comfortable.  Consistency in slipping style is what is important for a flawless edge.
  • Watch It: check out mini tutorials for the I-cord Cast On and Bind Off and cabling without a cable needle on the Knit Eco Chic blog, Quick Stitch Tutorials.
