I-cord Bind Off In The Round. Sleeve.

Today I want to share with you an i-cord bind off when knitting in the round tutorial that I created specially for the sleeves of The Choice Cardigan (coming at the beginning of November!!!). But you can use it with any pattern, even if instructions are completely different!

I-cord Bind Off In The Round. Sleeve.

How To Knit I-Cord Bind Off In The Round


  • BOR – beginning of the round.
  • st(s) – stitch(es).
  • RH – right hand.
  • LH – left hand.
  • ssk – slip, slip, knit.
  • k2tog – knit two together.
  • tbl – through back loop.

Here is the link to a video tutorial how to graft live i-cord sts and cast on i-cord sts – Grafting I-Cord Bind Off. The video is silent, but in my opinion is very clear.

I hope you’ll find this mini-tutorial useful! As always, feel free to post any questions in the comments.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

    I love your tutorials! So beautifully done with clear photographs and instructions. Perfect for visual learners! I would not hesitate to stretch my skills and buy a pattern of yours to learn techniques new to me. I know at last that I could tackle cables with one of your patterns. Your instruction writing would get me through it!

      Oh, thank you so much, Elizabeth, for these words! I am also a visual learner, that’s why I prefer videos/photo tutorials + written instructions, I really believe there is no such a technique that can’t be learned in knitting, at the end of the day it all comes to knits and purls 🙂

    I cord is the best. I want to add it to all my knitting projects. For me, it’s like bread and butter. It simply must be.
    I know you must put so much hard work and time into these posts. You’re a saint.

    your photos are always so beautiful for your tutorials—-which are very clear and concise! I love an i-cord bo so much, too!!! And simply can’t wait for the new pattern to be tested and released. For some strange reason, I’m in a sweater knitting mood…..and one is just about ready to come off the needles!
