How to Knit the Neatest "I-Cord" Edges | Mashup of Selvedge Finishing Techniques
Last but not least, this is my favourite "I-cord" edging technique, and is basically a 'mashup' of the techniques I've taught in my previous 2 videos; the classic i-cord edge and the double & triple selvedges.
These edges are stable, neat and smooth, and are built into the selvedges of the knitting. You can choose to make them 2 stitches or 3 stitches wide. The reason I like these edges the best is that they are the most even and symmetrical.
The other "i-cord edge" methods I've taught are widely used and accepted methods, but I either found them to be unsymmetrical, or I found it difficult to produce an equal tension on both edges. One edge always seemed to be looser than the other. With the technique in this video, I found it easier to produce more equal tension, and, put simply, they just look the best! I hope you like the results as much as me :)
