INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE I-CORD

STEP 1:
With double-pointed needles, cast on number of stitches desired or called for by a pattern – normally between three and five stitches.

STEP 2:
Knit the first row. Do not turn work.

STEP 3:
Slide the stitches to the opposite end of the needle. The working yarn is now on the left.

STEP 4:
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.

STEP 5:
After knitting a row, pull the yarn snug.

STEP 6:
Repeat steps 3 to 5 until desired length is achieved.

STEP 7:
Bind off normally.
