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?
