Notes

I wanted to make a bunch of twisty, corkscrew i-cord with my knitting machine, eventually to go onto a hat to make a sort of “wig”. I really searched and couldn’t find anything about machine knitting curly i-cord .

I adapted the HK method to MKing. It might not look like much right off the machine. If you wrap it around your finger it will help it to settle into its maximum curliness.

Use the pattern in your punch card or electronic machine, OR it’s simple enough to just manipulate the needles by hand as follows:

COR. Cast on 4 stitches. Hang a claw weight. Set your carriage to slip in both directions.
COR. No needles selected into UWP, knit right to left, no needles will knit
COL. Select 1,2 and 4 into UWP, knit left to right, needle 3 will slip.
COR. No needles selected into UWP, knit right to left, no needles will knit.
COL. Select 1,2 and 4 into UWP, knit left to right, needle 3 will slip.
COR. No needles selected, knit right to left, no needles will knit.
COL. Select all needles into UWP, knit left to right, all needles will knit.
Repeat ad nauseum.

So much quicker with automatic patterning.

Easy peasy.
