Rep this pattern three more times or to required length ending on a 1st row.
With 2 5mm DPNs, Cast on 7 sts and commence i-cord pattern.
K across 7 sts, but instead of turning work, slip sts to other end of needle, K across the sts, every now and then pull on knitted work.
Cont in this way until required length is achieved.
I find it easier to wash and press pieces before making-up.
