This should have been posted yesterday. Sadly that didn’t happen. Youtube and I had a difference of opinion. I thought should be allowed to upload an innocent little how-to-crochet video. Youtube seemed to think the world had enough of those because it stubbornly resisted all of my efforts Saturday and Sunday morning. But now we have made up and are friends again… until the next time.
So here is Sunday Stitch for your Monday.
How to Crochet Romanian Cord
Romanian Cord, aka Romanian Lace Cord (and also aka Macrame Cord even though it is not macrame), is a pretty but dead simple cord that you can whip up whenever you need. It’s fully reversible and works up fast. I’ve seen it used as ties, edges, stitched on embellishments. I’ve seen it looped and worn as bracelets, necklets, and on one occasion earrings.
Here is how you make it:
There are endless variations of the side-to-side cord making technique and most of them fall under the header of Romanian Point Lace. At its most elaborate, the cords are looped and stitched together to create beautiful lace designs with infill.
So if you have never tried Romanian Cord, jump right in. It might just be the perfect finishing touch to add to your next big project. And if you are already familiar with this style of side-to-side cord making, just know there is a whole world of this obscure way to make lace for you to loose yourself in.
