I got an Embellish Knit gadget to make some I-cord to connect my granddaughter's mittens. There are some decent videos on youtube that show how to set it up and how to get started. I did succeed in making a short length of I-cord, but not enough to make a mitten cord for my granddaughter. I've just been having trouble with the device. I finally figured out that the yarn tends to slip out of one the gadget's needles. I've been using the recommended weight of yarn, but maybe I need some lighter -lace weight even. I would have gotten the damn I-cord made by now if I hadn't been fooling around with this device and just knit the I-cord by hand on double points!
Has anyone else ever used an Embellish Knit? Any tips on using it?
There's a very old thread on this - you might want to search for it and see if there are any useful tips there. I recall that most people had lots of trouble. I myself bought one and ended up returning it, but I'm less patient than most.
