Today I’m going to share with you how to create an “I-cord edge”.
This technique gives a blanket a nice finished edge. I use it a lot when I’m creating a project with just the garter stitch (knitting every row).
Cast on your stitches for your project.
Slip your first stitch purl-wise onto your right needle.
Then knit your next stitch and the rest of the row until you get to your last stitch.
The last stitch you are going to purl.
Continue this pattern for every row – slip the first stitch purl-wise, knit the entire row, purl your last stitch – and you will create a lovely I-cord edge.
