How to Knit an I-Cord



This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit an I-Cord. This technique is used to create knitted ropes or circular pieces of fabric that can be used as accents on hats, as fringe, as a finished edge, or as handles on a purse or bag.

Skill: Easy

Instructions:

[Note: The following instructions are for using a double pointed needle (DPN).]
Step 1: After you have cast on your desired number of stitches, knit all stitches.
Step 2: Slide the stitches to the other end of the of the DPN. If you are using straight needles, transfer the needles back to your main needle.
Step 3: Bring your working yarn around the back and start knitting again. Make sure to pull the first stitch tightly.

    Making a I-cord is super cool but I have a question to ask you and everyone else. Is there other way to make a decorative I-cord other than this simple i-cord? Thanks.
