I have lately been trying to come up with an I-cord cast on (matching the i-cord bind off).
Well, my tries were unsuccessfull - then I googled it up and that came up with the same thing: you knit I-cord and you pic up the string before knitting the 3 stitches. Or you work the 1st stitch as kfb.
Both ways are not satisfying for me.
The kfb shows and the picked up string is not pretty either (or am I just doing it wrong)
Also with both ways I have a problem with the first row of stitches that I create: They pull slack out of the I-cord and turn really long after knitting them off (twice the size?). Also at the end of the cast on edge, I do not know how to stop the edge from riding up towards the stitches (that curve CAN be desireable, I guess, but not for straight works).
Does anyone have any other idea?
I have been trying to think up a way to make it happen… well, I was not successfull yet.
