I'm making a I-cord for the booga bag and want to put cord in the I-cord so Handle doesn't stretch.Should I put cord in before I felt or when the cord felts does it felt so there is no way to string cord threw it ?

I'm not sure how you are going to put it in either way. When you knit it, it's completely closed up. Hmmm...

Maybe you should put it in as you knit?

There is a pattern on the DIY network that shows a handle knit flat then sewn around a cord. Maybe that is the way to go.

Are you just asking if the cord should be put in before felting or after? Doesn't the pattern tell you?

This is my own idea so the cord doesn't stertch out of shape.My DH figured it out for me I already had made the cord so he taped a knitting needle to a piece of stiff wire and we thread it threw and the n taped the cord to the wire and pulled the wire and the cord slid through the cord Now to see what happens when I felt it
