  • I usually use a bobbin to make my cord, but I forgot it and was in search of a different method when I found this instruction. I needed a cord that was approximately four meters long. That's a lot of twisting!!!!!! However, I attached the ends of the yarn to a drill instead of a pencil and was finished with the entire project in about 10 minutes. This was wonderful!!!!
