>I cord can be used as a trim or edging and also to embellish your knitwear. You can plait three lengths together and sew the braid onto a jumper to give a mock cable effect.
The Bond Magicord Machine makes i cord quickly and easily. There are other similar machines available but the Bond Magicord is the one I have.
It can be a bit tricky getting it started but once you get going you can produce yards and yards of i cord in no time at all:
I found instructions online showing how to make an i cord scarf – here’s my effort that I made three years ago:
The instruction manual that came with the machine has lots of ideas on what you can make with your i cord including curtain tie backs, bags, place mats, coasters, hairslide and jewellery. I’m sure there are lots of other things you could make – your only limit is your imagination!
I wonder if it would be possible to knit something with your i cord using very big needles. I can’t see any reason why you couldn’t but what would you knit with ‘yarn’ that thick?
Talk to you later,
