Crochet Attached I Cord

As with most things in live there are different ways that you can accomplish the crochet I cord. Typically people do the pinch method to hold the stitches while working a crochet I cord. In this video tutorial I will show you three different ways that you can work the attached crochet I cord using other materials.

  1. With a crochet hook and knitting needle
  2. With two crochet hooks
  3. With a shawl pin and crochet hook

As you will see as you work the crochet I cord you are doing the same process as you do with knitting but with a crochet hook. You will get the same great look of a knit I cord for finishing your projects.

Try It Out the Crochet I Cord

I used the crochet I cord in my 2020 Tournament of Stitches pattern. Tournament of Stitches 2020 was a mosaic knit and crochet pattern that we worked on for 5 weeks. In the end we had a BEAUTIFUL scarf.

Because of the mosaic patterns we had yarn running up the sides of our work. This is the perfect time to use a crochet I cord as a border for a project. Using this technique you will be able to encase the edge of your piece and hide the floats of color working up the side.

Test out this new technique in any project you have or get started on the 2020 Tournament of Stitches. You can find the pattern to the 2020 Tournament of Stitches by clicking on the link here: https://marlybird.com/tournament-of-stitches-2020/
