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.
