So it won't look like a sling of Swiss cheese, just have more drape and feel lighter?

I have only used my DPNs to close a hat a few times, and it was intimidating for me. I have two tips that only a beginner (like myself), simply because we are inexperienced and more likely to making...

Do I like the brand or the fiber?

When I started knitting I bought a 70% Alpaca, 30% Merino blend by Cascade called Eco Duo (www.cascadeyarns.com/cascade-EcoDuo.asp). There is not much colour selection, but it was the softest yarn I...

That is such a great idea, I have a crochet needle. I will try that. :D

Actually, it made it worse. I don't understand what I am doing wrong. I am knitting super loosely. It looks sloppy.

I am pretty sure it is simply an i-cord weaved through the eyelets. In that case, I could probably do without the pattern.

So you think that I would knit the cord separately and just weave it through the ends of the scarf? Would it be completely unattached if would I have to knit or sew it in? The pattern doesn't matter?

That sounds complicated, I don't know enough to do it without instructions. I have never made an I-cord, would I do that before beginning to knit the length of the scarf? If so, which bind off would...

Definitely not wishy-washy!

Do you think it matters which stitch pattern for the scarf if it is a complicated...
