I've been knitting for a couple years (again) now. I am amazed at the techniques I can learn from videos that people have posted. THIS I-CORD stuff is amazing! I didn't know about it- thanks for sharing.

Thank you so much for showing this I-cord technique. I always have so much trouble with them. You make it look so easy. Looking forward to trying this soon! Thanks again!

This video was excellent! I have done I-cords - but never attached them to a garment - mostly I used the I-cord as a purse handle or as ties. I love the finish this gives.
Thank you for teaching this old knitter a new trick!
