Simple Way to Join I-Cord in the Round

Simple Way to Join I-Cord in the Round

To make sure an i-cord forms a flawless circle when we add it to a seamless project, we should join the ends of this i-cord with an invisible seam.

The best way to do it is to graft the open stitches to the very first row of the same i-cord. It is a simple process that works great for joining i-cords of any width, as well as seaming the ends of an i-cord edging and finishing off the i-cord bind off.

Here’s how this method works step by step

Skip the first step of this process when you join stitches of the i-cord bind off, but skipping a step is not enough when we join stitches of the i-cord cast on. In that case, we should take a slightly different approach. We’ll talk about that method in the next tutorial.


The full step-by-step photo tutorial about this method, is a part of the Knitting Collection #7. Once you order your copy of this collection, you will instantly receive a “big PDF” (282 pages!) with this and 37 other tutorials included in the collection.

You will also receive three e-books and one knitting pattern as a special bonus, so go ahead and get it all right now before you forget 😊
