With mine Easter edges stools For the first time I knitted the cords. What should I tell you, super easy and a lot more nerve-sparing. 🙂
Important is: Use Needles from Needle Play, you’ll soon see why. It only works with a few stitches, at least two and a maximum of six / seven stitches.
How do I knit a cord, cord or I cord?
The stitches are struck as always. I’m here with cross attack 5 stitches added.
The stitches are knitted in the first row as normal. You are now on the left side of the right needle ,
The stitches easy push on the right side of the needle , The needlestick is ideal for this because there are tips at both ends of the needle. Do not turn the knitting needle.
Of the thread is on the left side but that does not bother me. To stab in the first stitch …
… grab the thread and knit the stitch as normal. At the first stitch the Put on some thread ,
That’s how it looks. The stitches again push to the right and continue knitting ,
This is how the back looks like the first rows. Do not worry, after a few rows it looks better.
In between, the cord again and again pull down ,
If the correct length is reached , cut the thread and thread it into a needle without a tip. Pierce through the stitches with the needle …
… then thread go through and pull together ,
The stitches can also be chained off, depending on how it is useful for your project.
The cord, knitting cord or I-cord is ready!
In this way can be quickly and easily different long and thick cords produce. In my opinion, less stressful than with Strickliesel or Strickmühle.
I will use this knitting technique more often now. How is it with you?
Happy needles rattle and see you soon
