INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE I-CORD
With double-pointed needles, cast on number of stitches desired or called for by a pattern – normally between three and five stitches.
Knit the first row. Do not turn work.
Slide the stitches to the opposite end of the needle. The working yarn is now on the left.
Bring the working yarn tightly across the back of your work and knit the next row. As you pull the yarn the back will close up forming the cord.
After knitting a row, pull the yarn snug.
Repeat steps 3 to 5 until desired length is achieved.
Bind off normally.
