If you’ve ever knitted with a French knitting doll, you may wonder why this is necessary. Well, the knitting doll will only accommodate thin yarn, so we need a way to create small tubes of knitting with thicker yarn.
It’s also a lot easier to use this method if you only need a short piece knitted up, for a buttonhole or a snowman’s hat for a tiny decoration!
Do I need double-pointed needles?
Simple answer is no! Watch this video and I’ll show you that you can knit i-cord with single pointed needles. It’s simple hack and can be a very fast way of knitting up i-cord too.
We don’t all have every size of needle in single-pointed , double-pointed and circular options, so this will help when you don’t want to buy another set of needles for a very small part of your pattern.
