This is my favorite I-Cord Cast On!
Things to Love about an I-Cord Cast On
- You don’t get that classic stockinette curl!
- It’s pretty!
- It doesn’t look like something you could buy at a store – it’s decorative!
- It’s stretchy!
Now that I’ve gushed about the I-Cord Cast On, let me show you how to do it.
How to work MY FAVORITE I-Cord Cast On
First, work a regular I-Cord. Work as many rows as you need stitches cast on.
Get the I-Cord Ready for the Cast On
You’ll have 3 stitches on the needle, but you need to start this with just one.
Work a SKPSSO (one stitch on each needle). Knit that final stitch and pass the first stitch over the second. One stitch remains on the right needle. This is your first cast on stitch.
Now, Pick Up the Rest of the Stitches from the I-Cord
This is just a sampling of what’s in our Casting On and Binding Off PDF!

Jody is the founder and lead editor of Knotions. She loves poring over stitch dictionaries and trying out new stitches. And while she likes all things crafting (well ok, except that one thing), yarn crafts are her true love (and she has the stash to prove it).
She’s a serial starter-of-projects and has a serious problem with finishing things without a deadline.
And don’t get her talking about hand-dyed yarns. You’ve been warned.
