How to Knit an I-Cord

Knitting tutorial: How to knit an I-cord on DPNs
Often considered a kid's project, knitting an I-cord is an easy way to create straps or handles for bags, edging or just a fun embellishment.

Before You Begin

An I-cord is just a narrow, knit tube or rope. I-cords are generally worked over 3, 4 or 5 stitches. Technically you are knitting the stitches in the round, but since the circumference is so small, you can knit an I-cord an a pair of dpns in what looks like rows.

Materials

  • 2 dpns
  • yarn or tapestry needle
