Knitted i-cord necklace tutorial!

Chloe Bailey's stash busting i-cord knitted necklace is the perfect little project to use some old yarn! Super fun and easy to make, you'll be make loads of these.

This chunky i-cord necklace is a super fun stash buster and the perfect project, whether you’re a knitter or a crocheter there’s a tutorial version for everyone!


Pro Tip

Add some glamour to your necklace and hold the t-shirt yarn double with a glitter thread! I have used Ricorumi Lame in Silver. Just be careful with your tension as the t-shirt yarn will be stretchier than the glitter yarn, so make sure you keep your tension relaxed and the yarns held evenly whilst being worked together.


step 1

With 12mm needles, leave a long starting tail (10-12 inches) and cast on 3.


step 2

 Knit each stitch.


step 3

Slip each stitch back on to the left hand needle.


step 4

Repeat steps 1 and 2. After the first few rounds, the i-cord will begin to look like a round cord. Repeat until you have a total of 45 i-cord rounds, or until the necklace measures the desired length.


step 5

When you have completed step 2 for the final time, cast off the 3 stitches and fasten off. Cut the yarn end to your desired length for tying your necklace in a knot or bow.
