I-Cord Cast-on??? :oS
I decided to caston for the Touch of Whimsy Scarf, but don't know how to do an i-cord cast on. I know how to do the i-cord but don't get the rest. What does "kfb" mean????
ICord cast on: cast on 3 sts. Slip these sts back onto the left hand needle.
Row 1: kfb of the 1st st. creating another st, k2.
Slip the last 3 sts from the right hand needle to the left needle
Row 2: kfb of the 1st st creating another st., k2. Then slip the last 3 sts from the
right needle to the left needle.
Repeat these steps until you have all of the sts needed for your cast PLUS 2
more sts. THEN slip the last 3 sts from the right hand needle to the left hand
needle, k2tog, k1. Slip last 2 sts from right hand needle to the left hand needle,
k2tog.

KFB is knit in the front and the back of one stitch for an increase. It's show how in the Increase video called bar increase. For the rest, just follow step by step.

Yes I can make an I cord but for some reason I just can't get the hang of this cast on. Does anyone know if there is a video out there of this??? I have a hard time with the kfb and that is my main problem.

i cord cast on
Have you seen the instructions on the following website: http://whimsicalknittingdesigns.blog...d-cast-on.html
There is a video specifically showing step by step --- maybe it will help clarify the cast on.

Yes but I still can't get it. I don't know why I need to see someone actually doing the I cord and not just the kfb stitch.
Thanks
