Any weight yarn
Crochet hook to work at a firm gauge
1. Samples made with Red Heart Super Saver and G (4.5 mm) crochet hook
2. If you are making the I-Cord to be felted, I use an I (5.5 mm) crochet hook with worsted weight wool.
3. You will be working from the inside of a "tube".
4. You can work I-Cord over clothes line or drapery cord to make it stable.
Round 1: With G hook ch 2, depending how big you want the I-Cord 4, 5 or 6 sc in second chain from hook. Do not join.
Round 2-until desired length: Sc in back loop of next sc. Continue working sc in back loop until cord is as long as needed.
Fasten off leaving a 4 inch tail. Weave tail through the sc from the outside and pull snug.
So I guess you can make an I-cord with two strands, as I did, with a sc in bl. Your pattern comes out beautifully with two strands!
I'm glad I found yuor site. I have more confidence in my I-cord.
Thank you. :)
If not, can you tell me how you managed the one with that baby sack?
