The knitted i Cord is a very create way to add trim or volume to your knitting project and a creative stitch to use for other projects like braids, embellishment, etc.
In we feature three video tutorials that show you how to:
Knit and i Cord
i Cord cast-on
How to make a thicker i Cord
Finger knitting an i Cord
Creating i Cord Braids (2 versions)
I Cord Knitting Cast On
Pretty explanatory. This is how you would knit an i Cord before you start your knitting project, as an edge or trim.
Knitting The I Cord and I Cord Trim
This is one of our first videos. So back then I had no clue about knitting and actually reversed the titles of the videos, but you’ll notice that yourself 😉
By the way, as you can see, knitting an i cord is quite easy. We have other ways to knit it without a double pointed needle, so follow along, please.
Thick I Cord
This is a four stitch i cord knitted with single point needles. You pretty much follow this technique and add or subtract a stitch depending how thick your want the i cord.
Finger Knit I Cord
This is a super easy way to make a loose i cord with your fingers. This is a specially fun project for kids, though quite enjoyable to any age. Once you’ve knitted and i cord with your hand you can use them as trim, to layer necklaces, a streamers, garlands, for braids, etc.
These following videos are about making braids with already knitted i cords. Just a couple of examples of what your can do with them:
