I love this one ArtLady. The cranberry color is perfect, so rich. My first thought was that it looked like cranberry sauce, then read down and found out others thought of cranberries too and then that that is the actual name of the color.

The texture is great and the i-cord a great finish. I don't think I've ever done one that was in the directions, but they are tricky and doing them over is a pain because they are so slow. So I certainly feel with you on the redos.

As fast as you knit, we should get you knitting socks; you could cover the feet of everyone in Washington State in no time at all.

Oh, another beautiful project. The color is luscious just waiting for a fall outing to be worn. I am about to try my hand at applied i-cord on a jacket, did a practice run on a swatch and hope mine will be as great as yours. You are right: Applied i-cord is fun and love the finished appearance, almost like a braided band.

This was my very first time doing applied i-cord, can you believe it? I've avoided it like the plague! But this little jacket positively cried out for it, so I was obliged to hop onto You-Tube and LEARN how to do it!

The video I liked best was a lady who used a long circular to pick up all the required stitches along the (blanket) edge, and then maintaining the circular needle as "the holder of the picked up stitches", she then used a dpn to knit them off, one by one, as she worked the i-cord along!

I used her method because it allowed me to know exactly how many stitches would be involved in the applied i-cord on the button band side. Armed with this information, I could PRECISELY plan my buttonholes for the other front edge. No guesswork. The button band edge serves as a template for the buttonhole edge.

What a coincidence. I just watched the same YouTube video yesterday and decided this just might be the way to go. I will try this method as yours looks superb. Anyway, thanks for the 'hint' for your method.
