Friday Finds – Knitted I-Cords

Added BeadsOne of the simplest ways to teach knitting is to start with a knitted tube of yarn or i-cord. The i-cord was originally created by the late Elizabeth Zimmerman, knitting pioneer, who called it the idiot cord because anyone can knit one or i-cord for short. It really is quite an ingenious and very versatile piece of knitting. You’ll see i-cords used as ties and finished edges on knit garments; as belts and bag handles; with beads knit in as jewelry; and as decorative elements on home dec projects.  You can create an i-cord with knitting needles, a French Knitter, or a Wonder Knitter.  Here are a few links with i-cord creative inspiration for you:
