  • How to:
    • make twisted cord
    • All you need is some embroidery floss, pearl 8, or crochet cotton or lovely fine yarn & yourself.
  • Step 2:
    • Cut lengths of thread about 3 times longer than you want your finished cord. Ive used 4 strands for this cord but I probably prefer 2 strands for a more delicate finish.
  • Step 3:
    • Tie a knot at each end of your strands.
  • Step 4:
    • And tape one end to the table.
  • Step 5:
    • 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.
  • Step 6:
    • Youll know when youve twisted enough because the cord will start to twist on itself when you step forward.
  • Step 7:
    • Place one finger in the middle of your twist & then bring the end you were twisting to the end taped to the table..
  • Step 8:
    • YIKES that doesnt look right! Its OK dont panic.
  • Step 9:
    • Knot the ends together & just run your thumb & forefinger up & down the cord a few times.
  • Step 10:
    • There you have it. Perfectly twisted cord ready for your next crafty application. How gorgeous round around a moleskin?
