Learn How To Make A Basic Knitted iCord
In this video tutorial, you will learn how to make a basic knitted icord.
The icord is a tube. You knit the icord in the round and you use just 2 double-pointed needles to knit it.
This great knitting technique was pioneered by Elizabeth Zimmermanm. Apparently, she named it the Idiot Cord due to her accidental discovery of the simple, yet effective technique.
You can use the icord for many different different purposes. It is probably most common to use it as ties in garments.
However, you can also use it to make, for instance, bag handles, necklaces, appliques, etc.
