Not long ago I published a post titled "What to do with Crazy Yarn", where I suggested some great project ideas for yarn that's too fuzzy, too sparkly, or too vibrant to make into an everyday wardrobe piece. In this article, I provided a pattern that required you to knit an i-cord. I then received a number of emails asking how to knit an i-cord.
You should know, I absolutely LOVE getting requests like these, because I love interacting with my readers directly. So, I was happy to jump on this task for you all.
Without further ado, here is a super simple tutorial on how to knit an i-cord.
Start by casting 3 or 4 stitches onto dpns. I suggest 3 stitches if you're using a thicker yarn, or if you want a thinner i-cord. Knit to the end, but DO NOT turn your work. Instead, simply keep the right side of your work facing you, and slide it to the other end of the needle.
