Use Method #2 in this video to knit the cord for this project.


  • Leaving an 8″/20 cm tail and using the lucet and rope, knit a 65″/165 cm cord. Fasten off.
  • Beginning from center-out, roll cord into a spiral formation.
  • Using needle and string, whip stitch spiral layers together to tail; fold over tail to create loop, whip stitch around to secure. Tie off, weave in ends and trim.

  • OPTIONAL: Fold vinyl tab around bottom of loop. Machine, or hand-sew, or use a rivet to shut.


P.S. A shout-out to Sticker Mule for creating the cute, little YarnYAY! stickers we’re now using on our packages. That little pop of aqua, really helps our mailers feel special! Next up: I’m thinking I may need to start declaring my YAY! for the yarn via vinyl decals for car windows!
