How to make i-cord

What is i-cord, anyway? It’s a lightweight knitted rope. Knitting it is quite a simple trick.

  1. Using double-pointed needles, cast on four stitches.
  2. Slide the stitches to the other end of the needle and knit 4.
  3. Repeat step 2 until you have as much cord as you want.
  4. Cast off.

And that’s it. Here’s a small sample that I made using a multicoloured yarn.
