Best I-cord Demo. Very best edging and instruction ever. Slick and beautifull . Soon as I sign off will try this.

I love the look of this applied I-cord. It makes your blanket look lovely and it gives it such a complete finished look. I do have a question though? Can this also be applied to an afghan that I made with rows of Garter stitch and then Stockinette stitch as well? It appears that it would work great but I wanted to ask you first. I did think that I would make a little sample of rows to try this out on it before I do it on my finished afghan. Please give me your thoughts about the I-cord for my afghan. Thank you and keep bringing us wonderful tips.

Love the attached i-cord bind off. Very cool. Thank you for providing a video. I will use this method for finishing other projects.
