Thank you for the link, it was very helpful. I chose Option 3 and it looks really great. However, when I went back to weave in the ends I ran into the same problem I always do and the CO looks...

Why does my BO loosen up?

I attached pictures of the double-yarn-strand Cowl I knitted tonight, specifically focused on the BO edge. I did a Cable CO so I decided to do what was supposed to look like a Cable BO. It looked...

Which joining technique would you suggest for a Cable CO using two strands of chunky yarn?

I also started my CO with a Simple Loop to avoid having a knot.

I thought there might be a technique simply because it is two strands, that is all. Since there is so much yarn involved I will probably not use a long tail cast on. I have always wondered why nobody...
