How To Make Twisted Cord

  1. 1. How to: <ul><li>make twisted cord </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>All you need is some embroidery floss, pearl 8, or crochet cotton or lovely fine yarn & yourself. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Step 2: <ul><li>Cut lengths of thread about 3 times longer than you want your finished cord. I’ve used 4 strands for this cord but I probably prefer 2 strands for a more delicate finish. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Step 3: <ul><li>Tie a knot at each end of your strands. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Step 4: <ul><li>And tape one end to the table. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Step 5: <ul><li>Slip a pen or pencil through the other end of the strands, stand back so that the strands are taught & start twisting & twisting & twisting. I twist clockwise. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Step 6: <ul><li>You’ll know when you’ve twisted enough because the cord will start to twist on itself when you step forward. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Step 7: <ul><li>Place one finger in the middle of your twist & then bring the end you were twisting to the end taped to the table.. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Step 8: <ul><li>YIKES – that doesn’t look right! It’s OK – don’t panic. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Step 9: <ul><li>Knot the ends together & just run your thumb & forefinger up & down the cord a few times. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Step 10: <ul><li>There you have it. Perfectly twisted cord ready for your next crafty application. How gorgeous round around a moleskin? </li></ul>
