Tip Of The Week: Crocheted Phone Cord

I don’t know if you have the same problem that I have, but in my house phone cords seem to have legs—they just vanish. I believe they walk away while we are not looking and just don’t come back. I found a solution for that problem! I now crochet around the cord and it seems like it makes them happy and they don’t leave anymore.

Did a friend or relative bring their phone and take your charger home with them? Well, that won’t happen again when they are colorful and crocheted!

 

Lets begin

I used a 1.75mm steel crochet hook and a ball of Aunt Lydia’s Classic Crochet Thread Size 10.  The color I used is #250 Mexicana.  You can use any hook and yarn you prefer.

Start with a slip knot on your hook and leave a long tail.

Single crochet around the cord and the starting tail, so you don’t have to weave it in.

Throughout the way, bring your stitches together so there are no spaces between them, and make sure to crochet tightly.  When you get to the other end of the phone cord, fasten off and leave a long tail.  Carefully weave in the end with a needle.

Make a different colored cord for all of your devices!
