How To Make a Twisted Cord
Cut 3 or 4 strands of yarn, each cut to a length three times as long as you want the finished cord to be.
Holding strands together, fold them in half and tie 2 ends together to form a long loop; hook knotted end over door knob or hook.
Stretch this loop to its limit and, at looped end, insert a pencil; twist yarns, making them rotate in same direction.
When strands are well twisted, fold them in the middle (with both ends together); the yarns will rotate automatically to form the cord. Bind ends with a small knot.
