The Eyelet I-cord bind off is a way of creating a nice clean edge with a little lacy detail. It creates a tube like the I-cord, and makes a great finished piece. The I-cord cast on is the prefect complemnt for this find off. This technique gives a professional finish to your work.

    would this still roll if you were doing stockenette sitich ? I really liker the bind off.

      It’s not going to negate any curling on the sides.

        Will it curl at the hem like in reg. stockenette.Or will it help to keep hem from rolling,not sides I will be seaming the sides.

    I’ve been knitting for almost 30 years and think of myself as pretty accomplished and clever but you guys surprise me all the time! I’ve taken many classes and seldom learn anything new – not so with your website. I can’t believe all the cool tricks I’ve learned – I especially like your tips on different ways to cast on and bind off. I can’t wait to use this trick in my next design! Wish I had time to watch more. Hoping to take one of your classes this summer. In the meantime I’ll be dreaming of my next project (or maybe I’ll get around to writing up the bed jacket you guys asked me for a while ago ;-/ I keep telling knitting pals that your website rocks!
