This demonstration is aimed at people who are knitting my Flutterbye Cardigan pattern. However I hope anyone wishing to pick up stitches along an i-cord will find it helpful! The video shows the 3 i-cord stitches left live at the beginning of the cord and the end stitches are picked up from a provisional cast on. This means that the i-cord can continue to be worked along the edges of the fabric as it grows. This is how the neckline for the Flutterbye Cardigan is constructed and then the button bands are worked seamlessly as the cardigan grows.
