Knitmas Day Two

On the second day of Knitmas…

Day Two 

Notes: Now we’re going to add a few garter stitches to each edge to keep the scarf (shawl) from rolling at the edges. When directed to carry a color, you can hide it inside the i-cord edging as follows: after turning your work to the RS, pass the working yarn under the carried color then knit your first 3 sts and again pass the working yarn under the carried yarn. This technique tucks it away inside the i-cord as you go.

[k1, p1] – any time you see brackets [ ] around a set of directions, it means you will repeat those directions.
