Attaching an i-cord to a bag for trim
 
This is the pattern:

I'm down to the i-cord trim. I know how to make an i-cord, but the instructions to attach the i-cord to the trim of the bag don't make sense to me. I can't visualize what I need to do. Anybody get it?

When you pick up the stitch and then knit 2 tog you are attaching the i-cord to the top edge of the bag. Here are a couple other places w/instructions, some with photos. Maybe reading it from a different souce will help make it 'click' for your.

I think this is just beyond my ability to comprehend. I love how it looks but I guess I'm going to have to leave it off :(
