How to Make Twisted Cord

Twisted cord is one of the embellishments I use most often.  It’s so simple and it goes perfectly with your project because it’s made out of the same yarn.  The best thing about it is that most people already have everything they need to make it at home.  No purchases required.

I made a quick little video to show how I make it, but if you’d like more information, check out our tutorial as well.

The only thing I’d mention besides what's shown in the video (and tutorial) is that you might need a friend's help with a long cord.  It's important to control the twist when you are twisting it back onto itself. A friend holding one end taut is essential if your cord is longer than your arm span. Otherwise it just flails out of control and twists upon itself in ways that you won’t want.
