I have recently retaught myself the basic entrelac stitch.  In the process I created a 20" square that I am turning into a throw pillow.  I have the back almost complete and was thinking of ways to edge the pillow.  I will be crocheting the 2 pieces together using single crochet.  This will give me the base I need to do the edging.  Now comes the question, how do you attach an I -Cord to the edge of a finished piece as you knit it?  I remember seeing the technique demonstrated in an article in one of my magazines and I believe it was Interweave Knits.  I have issues going back for the last 8 years and I don't remember which issue I saw it in, or if it even was in one of Interweave knits.  If anyone out there has an idea of where I can find this, I would greatly appreciate it.  When I get the pillow finished, I'll post a photo of it.

 

Thanks,

Mary

Thank-you.  It was a fun project and I will probably be making a couple more before I'm done.  Both of my girls have done the whole, whine at mom for one.  But it won't be till later that I make them one.  Right now I am finishing some projects for myself.
