    Thank you for sharing this great option for binding off. Can this technique be done in the round? If so what alterations need to be made to complete this technique in the round? Thanks again. Can’t wait to learn more.

      It may be possible to do in the round but I’m not positive how. It would probably entail you grafting the i-cord edge together where they meet.

      The easiest thing would be to knit it separately and then sew it on later.
