Somewhere I read a hint about attaching an I cord to your project, had something to do with slipping the stitch before last. It was not on the video, does anyone remember where or what the hint was?

I don't know if this was it or not - it's a description and a video for attached i-cord.

Great video!

Question: When would I need to knit one of those?

You can use an attached i-cord as an edging on just about anything. I've done it on sweater necks and mitten cuffs and have seen them on bags.

Of course, Ingrid would know the answer. :notworthy: It's a good thing she's on our side.

Thanks girls.

Sweater necklines and bags are excatly what I though. Might give it a try on one of my scarves.

Another good thing about this video is that she knits English.

I am making the I cord for the top of a baby's cap, it is supposed to be the stem of a pumpkin, and it really looks cute. The two sides curl toward each other, but I assume I have to sew them to secure it, right?

You shouldn't have to sew anything on the i-cord. The curl is created by bringing the yarn across the back. It'll stay.
