i tried several type of yarns and cord but one of the hook loop kept dropping the stitch and tangled up and had to use the scissor to cut tangled mess.i would like to return this unit and get refunded .the last tangled mess is in the unit.Read More
Others have mentioned that this is a bit fiddly to use. I did not have that problem. Used it to make icord necklaces, which used up a lot of fingering weight yarn in my stash. Beats trying to knit massive quantities of icord by hand.Read More
I love this little gadget. I have had one for quite a few years and have been looking for it to buy for a friend. I'm sure she'll love it as much as I do!Read More
I did not buy this from Overstock but got it for a similar price (a couple of bucks more) at a brick-and-mortar crafts store. This will not work with yarns thicker than sport weight, but it is super fast at creating i-cords. I hate hand knitting them, so this is a perfect solution to that! Once you have it set up, you can crank out 2 feet of i-cord in under a minute. For creating miles of cord for braided scarves and the like, this is invaluable. I wish it would handle heavier yarns, but for the money I can't complain.Read More
Me bad for not asking more questions about this item before purchasing. This will work with finer weight yarns -- probably sportweight and lighter. Althought it says it will work with "lightweight fancy yarns" given the problems I had making it work smoothly with the sample yarn provided, I would be very concerned. I found I had to keep on eye on the device since the yarn tended to slip off the latches, skip and do other annoying things because it is difficult to put the yarn back onto the latches due to the plastic case to protect fingers from the latches. My kit didn't have the "tapestry needle" referenced in the instructions and the instructions themselves which were a bit spotty. I think it took me about 45 minutes to figure out how to get it to work.I actually wanted something that would work with heavier weight yarns but should have realized for the price this wouldn't do it. I may try this with some crochet cotton I have and see if I can't make some quick potholders. Using a weight on the end of the yarn did help somewhat with tension but I found the weight so heavy, it kept pulling too much yarn down while I was trying to set up the first row or so. Also, be sure to let your completed cord "untwist" every couple of feet or so.Unless you want to create a lot of I-cord with finer weight yarns, save the money and just spend the time knitting the I-cord yourself.Read More
