This technique joins two I-cord strips

 

  • Place knitting to be joined on two needles and hold them parallel to each other with the end of the needles to the right.
  • Pick up the tail of yarn from one piece of knitting and thread it through the eye of a yarn needle.
  • Using the yarn needle like a knitting needle, pull it through the first stitch on the front needle as if to purl, leaving the stitch on the needle and pulling the yarn through.
  • Insert the needle into the first stitch on the back needle as if to knit and leave the stitch on the needle. Pull the yarn through.
  • * Insert the needle into the first stitch on the front needle as if to knit and pull the stitch off the needle.
  • Insert the needle into the next stitch on the front needle as if to purl and leave it on the needle. Pull the yarn through.
  • Insert the needle into the first stitch on the back needle as if to purl and let it fall off the needle.
  • Insert the needle into the next stitch on the back needle as if to knit and leave it on the needle. Pull the yarn through.*
  • Repeat between *s once. You now have one stitch left on each needle.
  • Insert the needle through the remaining stitch on the front needle as if to knit and let it fall off the needle. Pull the yarn through.
  • Insert the needle through the remaining stitch on the back needle as if to purl and let it fall off the needle. Pull the yarn through.
  • Weave in remaining end.

For I-cord you can bury the end inside the tube after securing it.
