I-chord
I am trying to make a necklace using the i-chord technique. I saw one that has a plastic tubing in the center to make it sturdy. How do they make it? It looks like it has more than 4 stiches though.
Help!

You can make the i-cord bigger or smaller by changing the number of stitches you use.

3 makes a very slender cord that would be super hard to get another cord through. The booga i-cord is 5 stitches.

You can experiment with a variety of stitches to get the size you want.

Good luck!!!!

Also, for an i-cord, youo shouldn't go over 5 stitches, because then it will become distorted and just weird looking. Anywhere from the 2-5 stitch range is good.

I have to disagree with this. I do 6 stitch i-cords all the time and they look just fine.

I meant, that some people I know try to do 10 stitch i-cord and it didn't work at all. I guess with knitting worsted, 6 is far as you could go. With a thinner yarn, you could probably go higher.
