I-Cord Bind Off


Nothing can complete a project, and give the garment a professional look then the right cast off.  

This cast off, would be the I-cord Bind Off. The I-Cord bind off is very time consuming. The results you will get will always be a sturdy polish look to your 
completed garment.



 97% of my completed garments, finished with an I-Cord Cast off. This would also include lace shawls.                           

The I-cord makes the garment appear to be sturdy.

 The reason for using the i-cord for lace shawls, it will give you the sturdiness with out feeling the yarn will break during the process of Blocking.

With the I-cord bind off, it gives the Tudora a sturdy bottom.












Closer look of the I-cord bind off:

I-cord, worked on the bind off row, makes a decorative edging that is firm and has a nicely finished appearance. Applied i-cord is lovely for neck or front edges where a simple, clean look is wanted rather than a garter stitch or ribbed edge.
