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!

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.

  1. 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 🙂

  2. Excellent tutorial, as always! Thank you!

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. Another wonderful tutorial! What a gift you have for explaining and sharing.
