Macramé Charger Cord: How-To
Scraps of fingering or sock-weight yarn (or plain string). I used this.
- 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 4½-5 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.
- STEP 2: Lay the right-hand strand OVER the left-hand strand.
- Step 3: Bring the right-hand strand UNDER the center strands and cord,
- and UP THROUGH the loop created by the left-hand strand.
- Step 4: Pull taught.
- Repeat Steps 1-4, FIVE times total.
- Twist yarn clockwise ½ turn.
- Repeat process until cord is covered. Wrap and knot at end.
- Trim end, and even out tassel.
