That scarf is fantastic! I absolutely LOVE it!  Did you make this up, or did you have a pattern?

Thank you so much. I just made it up as I went. The cords are easy. Just rather tedious

Thanks again!  Smiley

I have read one should always save the yarn wrapping. But I didn't! I bought most of the yarn at Micheals. It's a soft something. But not simply soft. I also put in some colors of other worsted weight yarns I had.

I-cords are easy. Here is a link from KnittingHelp.com:

http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/knitting-tips   Roll down the page.

On this scarf, I started the cords by using the tail from the yarn change. (not all the tails are used. Some need to be woven in) So leave a long tail. (The tails will get all bunched up so I rolled them and tied them into a ball until I knit the cords.)

I used a crochet hook to "pick up" two stitches though the existing work (then transfer the loops to the double point needles) I then added on one stitch and then knit the cords using the 3 stitches on double point needles.

KnittingHelp.com also has a video on how to pick up stitches.

I hope that helps. I'm not very good at explaining stuff. I used the technique from the book Scarf Style to change the colors.
