Loki’s Leash Knitting Pattern

Make this simple dog leash with two double point needles and a super bulky weight yarn.

Loki’s Leash

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!
