Question about I-cord

I’m wondering if I-cord stretches (like on the handle of a purse)–and, if so, how much?


Knitaholic :??

My Booga bag handles didn’t stretch; they are felted ICord

If they aren’t felted I think they could probably stretch some especially if the bag is heavy. No experience with it though.

These handles are not felted–so I hope they don’t stretch.



Yes, if the cord is not felted it will stretch. I made a tote bag and I really love it but the I-Cord handle does “grow” when I am holding on to it.
