Make this simple dog leash with two double point needles and a super bulky weight yarn.
The leash is made with an I-Cord. You will NOT be turning your work like you would during flat knitting. Instead, at end of each row, slide stitches from left hand side of double point needle to right hand side, With the other double point needle, knit stitches like normal. This is a way of knitting in the round.
Fun Fact: the I in I CORD stands for idiot because it’s that simple!
Bulky Weight Yarn
Two size 11 Double Point Needles
Gauge: Not important
Cast On 3 stitches onto a double point needle
Slide cast on stitches from left side of needle to right (your working yarn will be in the back on the left hand side of your stitches)
Knit the first stitch on needle with your working yarn. Knit across row.
Slide stitches again from left side of needle to right.
Repeat until your i-cord measures 64 inches
Bind off stitches
Cut working yarn leaving apx 10 inches of yarn
To create handle measure 14 inches from top of rope. Attach tip of rope using remaining tail at the 14 inch mark. Weave tail through rope until it securely makes a sealed loop.

We’d love to see your leashes! Please share your creations with us on Facebook or Ravelry.
Our little Daisy Mae…I turned my head for one minute and this is what I found. She had grabbed a tail of yarn hanging off my wrapping table. Thankfully, it wasn’t hand painted and it wasn’t anything that was too big of a deal.
I caught her before she really got into chewing it or swallowing it. She was just laying in the sun rolling around in it.
How can you be mad at a face like that…really!
Sunday is my youngest birthday and we are having a “football” themed birthday party for him. I am making most of his presents by hand, since he is only four and he really loves snugly things. Since using my sewing machine for the first time the other day. I feel like I am a pro…lol…I know I am far from it. BUT I whipped out a blanket in about ten minutes. So proud. I am also in the process of making him a sock monkey. I will be sure to post pics when I get it going! Hope everyone is having a nice week.
