That technique can also be used to work with finer yarn than the one of the main project.
I called it the "spaced-out" applied i-cord and I am glad that so many of you liked it!
So, let's imagine that you finished up your i-cord bind off on your neckline, hem or cuff - and it thankfully looks great and doesn't pucker - and now you want to close it up to finally be able to try your garment on and admire your hard work...
What do you do? Don't say that you are going to sew the ends together like that, hoping that nobody will notice the harsh line or bump right in the middle of your perfect, smooth, round and even i-cord edge??!!??
Well, as the title already gave away, in this post you can find the answer about how to graft the two ends of an i-cord invisibly together.
For the ones that aren't already familiar with this technique, I prepared the following photo-tutorial to round up on the i-cord subject (for now):

And no need to avoid i-cords in general. This method might take much more time than a simple bind off, but it is so much more beautiful, isn't it?
