How to sew on an icord?
I want to sew a icord onto the edge of a knit pillow that I'm making for my Mom.

1)Should I sew the icord onto one side before I sew back an front together?

2)Should I sew front back and icord together a the same time?

3)should I attach icord after I sew front an back of pillow together?

Thanks in advance
Bonnie

I've never sewn an icord onto something, but I have knitted them on.

What might work really well is to pick up stitches through both of the pillow edges. Then you can either purl back or cut the yarn and start the icord at the other edge so you can do it on the knit side that you picked up. Then you knit 3 and slide them back onto the left tip. Then *k2, k2tog and slip those back, and keep doing that until you run out of stitches. If you wanted, you could do it all around the pillow edge in one shot. Just pick up extra stitches around the corners.

Thanks everyone. LOL...I think I'm just going to wing it. This whole attaching icord thing has me confused.

The icord is already made so i'll just sew it on.
