In this post, I promised that I would show you how to make an attached I-cord. Adding an applied I-cord is an indispensable technique for creating a nice, clean look to a bound-off neckline. Try these three simple steps to get started:
Horizontal Applied I-Cord/I-Cord Bind-Off
Step 1: On the last row or round before you would normally bind off, work as follows: cast on 4 sts (use provisional cast-on if you’re going to want to graft the ends of the I-cord together)
Step 2: Slip the 4 sts to LH needle.
Step 3: K3, sl 1 st knitwise, knit 1 st from main fabric, pass slipped st over (or ssk the sts tog) Do not turn. Pass the 4 I-cord sts back to the RH needle.
Repeat Step 3 until all the sts are bound-off.
