We've used I-Cords in our Lunch Sack and Bag Bag projects. In the Lunch Sack two I-Cords are made, and used as a tie, the Bag Bag has an I-Cord that is folded into a loop and used to hang. These are only a few of the many uses of I-Cords. Keep reading to find out how to make one.
Step 1: Using a double pointed needle, cast on or pick up 3 stitches, or the number of stitches required by your pattern. For a thinner cord, use fewer stitches, for a thicker cord, use more.
Step 2: With a second double pointed needle, knit across all stitches.
Step 3: Without turning the work, slide the stitches to the right-hand end of your needle.
Step 4: Pull the yarn tightly from the end of the row, behind your stitches.
Repeat Steps 24 until your cord measures the desired length.
