Parker's Baby Blanket is finished! And, I used my Flip Mino to record a little lesson on applied I-cord borders.

Here is the blanket without the border.

And, here are my little videos! The first one covers getting the applied I-Cord started.

Now I show you how to turn a corner!

Now join the ends with Kitchener Stitch!

Here is the Moderne Baby Blanket with the border! Notice how I have enough yarn left over to make a Baby Surprise Jacket? I always get 9 balls of each color so be sure I don't run out. I figure that I can always use up the extra Swish Worsted yarn in a sweater, or something!

Your mino tutorials are so helpful. Please consider posting these under your tutorial tab. I worry in the future I won't be able to find them. Thank you,

I've made seven or eight of these now (addictive!) and I avoid the binding off and picking up when I can using my Options needles...just leave the cables in and move the needle parts to the next block and put the caps on the block just finished...on the sides this also simplifies the I-cord...
I am working on one now in primary red, blue, green and yellow for the Victory Junction Gang camps...I love the way it is turning out!

This was great, except now I have to start another project! What is one more project going on, at least I'm not getting bored. Thank you for the lesson and I love your catalog.

Thank you so much for this wonderful tutorial. I love i-cord borders, but I haven't had to turn a corner yet, I knew I was goingt to have to look for a solution for that someday... now I'm ready :)

Thank you so much. I have never posted a comment before but those videos deserve one. I made one blanket with the border as per the pattern which was painful and the border did not reflect all the effort that I put into it. I so look forward to the applied i-cord border on the next one. Keep up the hard work, it makes everything in your catalog hard to resist.

Thank you! This series was my first "You tube" video experience. I'm one of those "How-to-book-in-one-hand-project-in-other" knitters (I believe 'self taught' is the correct term) and some of the techniques that are shown in the books I just don't understand, but, your video lesson was exactly what I needed. It was like I had a friend here on my couch showing me exactly how to make the I-cord binding. This computer age is WONDERFUL .

Kelley - Your blanket is so beautiful. The yarn looks rich and lush. Thank you so much for the i-cord border lesson. I was just looking at a sweater pattern with that border and wondering how in the world to do it and where to look to find out. Thanks for being the friend that has better skills than I do!
