Description ~ Ins and Outs of I-Cord

I-cord is a circular tube of stockinette stitch, usually comprised of 4 stitches. It is the same result as the knitting Nancy or knitting spool but uses two double-pointed needles. Learn how to make this simple and useful strand and its applications. More importantly, see how easy it is to trim knitting with it as a fun and functional trim or border. Try some of the manipulations like using it to bind off pieces or even to seam pieces together. Look at a few other uses for this versatile bit of knitting. I-cord stands for Idiot-Cord, but Elizabeth Zimmerman said it really should be Ingenious-Cord.
