another applied icord question!
So, I have now mastered the icord bind off and I'm so happy with it!

But, I would like to put icord on the hem around the neck. If the stitches are already bound off (not live) do I pick them all up first and then do the bind off or just pick one up as I go each time?

Thanks!

It's been awhile since I made one of these, but I don't see why you can't just p/u stitches with the color you want the i-cord to be and then do the i-cord bind off.

Stability
I'm with Jan and would pick up the stitches first and use these stitches as the foundation for your i-cord bind off. I think it would add stability to the edge by having the stitches along the edge be connected to each other first and then bound off.

Sounds gorgemous, btw!
