Any I Cord Tips?
Let me just say, I HATE Icords... I am doing a cute hat that calls for Icords on the earflaps... but my Icords suck (how many times can I say Icords in one post?)... If I pull tight like the video says, I cant shove my needle in for the next stitch... and it just ends up looking reallllyyyy sloppy....

I originally abandoned the hat, but I just had an idea for a new project that would require many many icords, so now I must learn...

Is it just a matter of practice?

Count of word icords in post: 6 (7 including title)
