I stumbled into this design while reworking an element in a different project, and I realized this practice piece serves a great purpose on its own! With an icord cast-on, integrated icord edging, German short rows and an icord bind-off, this DK accessory packs in a bunch of skills! SURPLUS makes a great gift knit, too, for when you’re searching for a fun and functional gift for a friend.
