An I-Cord, even though it has a very boring name, is really quite brilliant. Their original name, ‘stay lace’ sounds a tad more interesting, but even so… the names just don’t do these little delights any justice.

yarn of any colour and any weight. In this tutorial I used a worsted weight yarn ( #4) in purple, from my stash. I think if you take a look around my site here, I’ve got quite a bit of purple I should really switch that up soon I guess, but I can’t let it go to waste. Right?
