ok, so i’m unhappy with the flimsiness of my 30 hearts cowl’s edging. the seed stitch is not as sturdy as it should be. i’d like to do a fully after-the-fact applied i-cord edging. the cowl was done seamlessly, in-the-round. i get the basics of it, sliding stitches instead of turning needles, pulling working yarn from the ‘wrong’ side, etc, but i’m having trouble finding a video that shows it done on a seamless item…
…i get the sense that i should still do this with DPNs, instead of circular needles, since i’m working with so few stitches. i basically need to pu&k, then (cable?) cast on extra stitches, work those, then keep pu&k-ing while knitting those few stitches, all the way around. then when i get to the end, i graft the first and last stitches together via kitchener stitch? did i just go off the rails, or am i close?
i’ve looked at videos and picture tutorials here on KH, on very pink, on new stitch a day, on craftsy, etc.
my other option would be just a few rounds of garter stitch on the top and bottom, but i think the i-cord would be more decorative.
