Hey there! Here's another easy tutorial using the I-cord technique. Check out the free pattern below!
This technique is so versatile. You can use it to make leads for your pets, collars and the list goes on and on.
For a detailed explanation of this technique, check out this post and familiarize yourself with steps 1 - 4. Once you're done, head back and we can get started.
Okay, let's go.
5mm braided cotton cord
7 mm crochet hook
(2) two inch wood rings
* Pattern is written in standard US terms*
Step 1: Start with a slip knot and then chain two. You should have three chains total.
Step 2: Insert your hook in the second chain from the hook and pull up a loop. Then insert your hook into the last chain and pull up a loop. You should have 3 loops on your hook.
Step 3: (At this step, I vary slightly from the normal technique. I prefer to work from left to right.) With the working cord, draw up a loop in the far left stitch and then carefully remove it from your hook. Repeat for the next stitch. Pull up a loop in the final stitch but do not remove it from your hook.
Step 4: Return the 1st and 2nd loop to the hook. Bring your working yarn back to the left side and repeat step 3 until your work measures 65 inches. To finish off, remove the first two stitches from the hook. Slip stitch into the middle stitch and then the final stitch. Fasten off.
Step 5: Once your work measures 65 inches, you will connect a wood ring to each end. Finish off and weave your ends.
