An I-cord is a knitted tube that can be used for straps, edges and even the top of a hat. Follow along with this video that demonstrates how to make an I-cord with double points or the magic loop. I like to knit a baby hat as a newborn gift using my leftover sock yarn. I knit the entire hat from cast on to I-cord without double points by using the magic loop method. It’s quick and adorable!

  1. This is a bit more involved. With a dpn, cast on 3-5 sts. With RS of garment facing and dpn in right hand, pick up and knit a st through the edge of the garment. *Do not turn. Slied the sts to the other end of the dpn and move needle toleft hand. Pull the yarn across the back of the sts and knit until 2 sts remain, k2tog. Pick up and knit one stitch. Repeat from * until the I-cord is all along the edge. Cut yarn and pull yarn through the remaining I-cord sts.

  2. Michelle, sorry I was unclear in my request, but I was really looking for the following technique: Hoe do you attach an I-cord border edge in a different color yarn after your project is finished?

  3. Michelle, how do you knit an I-Cord Edge along the length of a scarf? I would love a video. Thank you. Your videos are extremely helpful!

  4. Great video. One question though, how do you end it? Do you just knit all three stitches together?
