Emily Explains: Beginning a Project with an I-cord

I love simple edges to garments and am always curious about ribbing or garter stitch alternatives. In the Spring/Summer ’15 collection, we designed Lobelias, Mojave Aster and North Shore to begin with an i-cord for a perfectly simple aesthetic.

Want some help getting started?

Then, pick up and knit the required number of stitches along the side edge of your I-cord.

The hardest part is choosing which project to knit!

Happy Making,

Emily
