How-To Make Twisted Cord
how to make twisted cord
Measure yarn approximately three times the desired finished length of cord. To determine how many strands of yarn to use, hold strand together and fold over. Add strands until desired thickness reached.
With two people facing each other, each person knots the end to a pencil and twists the pencil clockwise until the yarn is taut.

When the yarn begins to kink, one person holds both pencils, while the other holds the center of cord and lets the yarn twist. Knot the ends to prevent unraveling.
