flat I-cord in *usually* done on DPNs or a circular because you are always sliding the stitches back, so it goes like this:

k5, sl 4 pwise

turn and slide sts across to other side

carrying working yarn across back of work, k5, sl 4 pwise

turn and slide sts across to other side

repeat, etc.

However, I'm not familiar with making an I-Cord with slipped stitches except when doing an applied I-cord at an edge, so it might be different.... you might just knit normally back and forth, the slipped stitches that you are knitting 5 of the next row creating the applied cord...

These are standard instructions:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson
