Knitted Cord Tubular Handle

This technique results in a sturdy and attractive handle. Instructions are given for five circumferences: 1 (112, 2, 3, 4) inches. You need two dpns suitable for your yarn. For a tighter fabric, go down a needle size. For more than 8 sts, knit in the round using 4 dpns.

1 CO sts for your size and gauge according to Table 13.

2 Row 1 (RS): Knit across sts with second dpn but do not turn work.

3 Slide the sts back to the other end of the dpn, ready to work a RS row again. Knit across, pulling working yarn tightly across back to join the tube.

4 Rep step 3 until handle is desired length.

5 BO knitwise.

6 Go to "Finish and Attach Handles," page 63.
