How To Easily Make A Twist Cord
Cut yarn strips to desired length plus 1/3. In this sample I used 2 strands each of 4 colors of yarn for a total of 8 strands.
1
Tie one end in a knot and secure in place with a heavy object. This helps hold the strands of yarn in place while we create the twist.
2
Separate the yarn into sections of 2, 3 or 4 even groups. Optional: you can separate the strands of yarn by color as I am doing.
3
Twist one section of yarn turning it clockwise. Keep twisting until it curls around itself.
4
Repeat with each section of yarn, twisting in the same clockwise direction. Each section MUST be twisted in the same direction.
5
After all sections are twisted, hold loose ends together. Pull strands to equal lengths. Release the secured end allowing them to twist together.
6
You may need to help it twist evenly. I had to pull the white section a little tighter to help remove a gap. Secure the loose ends with a knot.
