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

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!

No problem! It is the last technique on this list, the only thing I did differently is that I purled rather than using the knit stitch. I don't know if they are meant to be interchangeable, but I...
