How To Crochet an I-Cord, Stitch Tutorial + Video


The crochet i-cord is a super handy skill for crocheters to have in their skill set.  If you need to add some sturdiness to a clothing strap, tote handle or just need something more rope-like, the i-cord may be just what you need!  Stitched up to look like a series of chains, its easy to do with just a bit of practice!

Check out my easy video tutorial that walks you through step by step!



For this tutorial all you'll need is a smooth strand yarn (easier to learn on than the more textured/novelty stuff) and the yarn's recommended hook size (check the label if you are not sure).  



How To Crochet an I-Cord
  1. Put a slip knot on your hook.
  2. Chain 3.
  3. Insert hook into the middle chain and bring up a loop.
  4. Insert hook into the last chain and bring up a loop.
  5. Remove two loops from the hook and hold tight.
  6. Wrap yarn around hook and bring through loop.
  7. Put loop closet to you back on the hook, then wrap yarn around hook and bring it through the loop.
  8. Put that last loop back on the hook, wrap yarn around hook and bring it through the hook (three loops on the hook at this point).
  9. Repeat steps 5-8 until i-cord is as long as you would like it to be.
  10. To finish off your i-cord, wrap yarn through all three loop on the hook, cut yarn, wrap yarn around hook and pull through firmly.
  11. Use tails to tie onto other items or weave in ends.

2020 Fiber Flux Charity Challenge!



Hello lovelies!  I have a fun and exciting project to share with you today...our annual charity CAL Challenge! 

On my own, I normally do charity projects throughout the year...hats, shawls, etc. and send them off for donation.  I thought it would be fun and meaningful to share these types of projects by focusing on a particular charity or area of need AND do it as a community...so who's with me?!
