Do you ever get caught up in a process, technique, or type of yarn? It happened to me last spring. I went on a massive I-cord jag. Massive. For two months every time I picked up the sticks I knitted yet more I-cord.

Today's scarf is called "I Love I-Cord". Surprise…surprise.

The challenge with this project was to create I-cord  warm enough to be a winter scarf. Since I-cord doesn't work as well with more than eight stitches on the double-pointed needles, a single strand wasn't thick enough. Doubled yarn was too unwieldly.

Braiding was the obvious solution. Three strands wasn't enough. The four-braid process I settled on is shown and explained in the pattern instructions.
