  • 00:01: [Music] hi this is june from planetjune and today i'm going to show you how to crochet an i-cord an i-cord is often used in knitting to make a very thin tube but if you look at it closely you can see it actually looks like a crocheted chain a second crocheted chain and a third crocheted chain all linked
  • 00:30: together so you can actually reproduce this quite easily in crochet we'll start off by forming a base for the three chains that will make up the icord so we'll chain three three insert your hook into the second chain and draw up a loop insert your hook into the third chain and draw up a loop now we have
  • 01:03: three loops on the hook and these are going to form the base of the icord we're going to drop loops two and three off the hook and hold onto them so that you don't accidentally pull them out in the next step now we're going to start chaining so chain one now put the second loop on your hook yarn over and chain one put the third loop back on your hook
  • 01:32: yarn over and chain one and then we're going to repeat that for every row so drop two and three off the hook hold onto them chain one put loop two back on the hook and chain one click move three back on the hook and chain one drop loops two and three off the hook so
  • 02:01: you just have one loop left and be sure to hold on to these other two loops so that you don't lose them okay so we're going to chain one with the loop on the hook put the second loop back on the hook and chain one put the third loop back on the hook and chain one now you can see that we're starting to form and I could you can keep going with this for
  • 02:31: as long as you want and it makes a nice stretchy tube that's very thin and very useful for crochet projects
