I-cord - back and forth

I-cord is a knitted tube. Often used for the handles on a bag or cords to tie on a hat or hood. We have another video showing how to make a small i-cord knitting from RS only, but with this one we show you how you how to make a larger one. You can cast on 4, 6, 8 sts or more, but it has to be an even number.
Work every row back and forth like this: *K1, put thread in front of piece, slip 1 st as if to purl, put thread behind piece*, repeat from *-* on all rows. This creates a round string.
When long enough knit sts tog 2 by 2 at the same time as binding off.

Tack så mycket för din detaljrika beskrivning. Jag är helnöjd med mitt projekt. Det blev ett rött "handtag" till julstrumpan.

Sensationell! Jetzt stricke ich schon so lange, und lerne immer noch dazu! Herzlichen Dank für die tollen Anleitungen!

Why handle each stitch twice? Why not purl the purl stitches, rather than slip them? This method is essentially 2 sided knitting yes?

Hi Deb, if you P the P sts it will not be a tube, it will become a flat ribbon.
