[Knitting] I-cord

[Copy link]

When I'm making I-cord I find there is one stitch on the cord that is looser than the other stitches in the row.  How do you get even stitches all around?

Thanks!

What's an I-cord?

I walked into a craft fair once with my ex.  After being with me for a while I was so proud of him when he noticed someone demonstrating the making of I-cord and he said, "I-cord!"

Have you tried knitting the last stitch tbl? it gives a more direct path back to the first stitch... ...

Thanks a lot for your suggestion. I think it's a good way to improve the result.

I have that problem too, but never searched for a solution.   Sometimes I think I should get a wooden thread spool and put nails on it.   I can't remember the name of  it, but it makes fabulous cords.   Oooh, it's a Knitting nancy or a spool knitter!

Think they call them French Knitters and knitting nobbies, too. I would do that, but the hat I'm making begins with I-cord then continues to have I-cord edges. So I figure I'd better just find some  Details Reply Post time 2015-9-21 08:23

Thank you, Lucy!  That did the trick along with a slight tug after each row.  Now to see if it helps when I try to work i cord borders on the body of the hat!
