Macramรฉ Charger Cord: How-To


Scraps of fingering or sock-weight yarn (or plain string). I used this.


Charger cord


  • Cut 2 strands each of yarn the length of charger cord, plus about 4″- 6″/10 cm – 15 cm. Cut 2 strands each of yarn  4ยฝ-5 TIMES the length of charger cord.
  • Arrange 4 strands so that the two shorter strands are sandwiched in the middle of the two longer strands. Holding strands together and leaving a long enough tail for a tassel, tie onto the top of charger cord using a double knot.
  • Begin Spiral Knot. STEP 1: Lay the left-hand strand OVER the center two strands.
