This tutorial explains how to work the edging for the cushions from the Sojourn Pattern booklet #11 using the simple two double pointed needle method. There may sometimes be a slight gap or seam between the stitches on the back. However, this doesn’t matter at all in this pattern, as you will be sewing the i-cord onto the edge of your cushion, and so concealing this. Bear in mind that 6 sts is the maximum you can use to create an i-cord using this method.
You need two 6.5mm double pointed needles and a small amount of Libby Summers' Chunky.
Step 1: Cast on 6 sts using 6mm dpns.
Step 2: Knit the first row. Do not turn work
Step 3: Slide sts to the other end of needle.
Step 4: Knit the next row, pulling the yarn tightly across the back of sts to close the gap between one side of the knitting and the other side.
Step 7: Repeat steps 3 - 4 until i-cord is desired length. Cast off.
I'm crazy about yarn, Scotland, food, my husband and my three girls, and I live in a perpetual state of organised chaos. Some just call it creativity.
