Long Tail Cast On Tips
Built In 2-Color I-Cord Edges
This video shows how easy it is to create a beautiful, finished 2-color i-cord edge. This technique is especially useful for mosaic patterns worked flat where the yarn color changes every 2 rows and the yarn has to be carried up the edge. The i-cord edge is stretchy and completely hides the yarn changes on the sides of the scarf.

The Trick Play Technique - and special trick for easy long tail cast on.
This video demonstrates the "Trick Play" technique, which is a neat way of creating ridges of stockinette and reverse stockinette without ever purling. A little bonus is provided to show an adaptation for the long tail cast on that not only eliminates the guess work behind how long a tail to use, but also eliminates any yarn ends to weave in, and finishes with two strands in position to begin working the trick play technique - this trick leaves me with a smug sense of satisfaction every time I use it.
