Let your knitting do the talking and spell out exactly how you feel with chunky, fun i-cord lettering
Using 4mm double-pointed needles and yarn A, cast on 6 sts. Divide these 6 sts over 2 needles (3 sts per needle). Work each letter as folls: 8 Cut a long length of A and D together and to cover exposed pipe cleaner wrap around the join.
Letter A 1 Cut a 34cm (13½in) length of pipe cleaner and fold in half. 2 Working in rounds around pipe cleaner, knit to end of pipe cleaner and until work measures 10cm from cast on edge. 3 Join in yarn D, holding yarn A and D together continue to knit around pipe cleaner until work measures 31cm (12¼in). 4 Continue in yarn A only, knit until work measures 36cm (14in). Cut yarn leaving a long tail and pull tight through 6 sts. 5 Cut a 8cm (3in) length of pipe cleaner. 6 Using 4mm needles and holding yarn A and D together cast on 6 sts. Working in rounds around pipe cleaner, knit until work measures 4cm (1½in) from cast on edge. 7 Use the 2cm (¾in) length of pipe cleaner at each end of the knitting to join to main part of the letter. 8 Cut a long length of yarn A and D together to cover the exposed pipe cleaner and wrap around each join.
Letter Y Now work a second ‘Y’ joining yarn D after 11cm (4½in), instead of 9cm (3½in).
