This is a simple, free tutorial to crochet an I-cord. The I-cord can be used for bag or basket handles, project edging, or as cord in specific craft projects.
Don’t you just love adding handles to bags and baskets? A nice handle just makes it so much easier to carry around. Handles also are the perfect finishing touch to any bag or basket. I’m into textures, too. The feel of the symmetrical, round cord in the palm is my favorite.
If you are looking for the perfect handle to complete your project, try out the I-cord with the tutorial below.
This Photo and Video Tutorial will teach you how to crochet an I-cord very easily. I actually love crocheting long string-like cords for bags, basket handles or even tails for amigurumi. I can see one using an I-cord for many other items as well, such a bracelet etc. I specifically used it for the Elephant Tissue Box Cover as the tail of the elephant.
Furthermore, the I-cord sure looks like it was knitted and that is actually how most people know about it to be made, but it can be done easily using crochet as well. In addition, if you prefer a thicker and sturdier version of the I-cord, please check out my Spiral Rope or Cord Tutorial which I prefer using for bag handles.
Now, some crocheters have trouble with Photo Tutorials, so I added a Video Tutorial to teach you how to crochet it right below. Be sure to check that out in case the photo tutorial is not clear enough.
