I-Cord How-tos Exposed



I-cords are often worked and used as ties and fasteners and become attractive embellishments. Hence, design elements. Uses and applications are only limited by imagination. Just two stitches are attractive and textural. They work up easily and quickly. Work to different lengths, in different yarn weights, to configure flowers, bag straps, applique, attached edgings for throws or garments, weaving into eyelets, hat tassels, tassels combined with pom poms,and the list goes on. Below, with how-to photo help, are two crocheted I-cord patterns. The first is the popular reversible pattern; it is attractive and sturdy. The second I-cord pattern is also worthy of consideration, ‘Susan’s Symmmetrical I-Cord’. This pattern results in a somewhat softer cord for those applications where the first I-Cord is not quite pliable enough.
