This technique will be very useful to create projects with different textures. Can you imagine creating your own baskets to place books or organize your knitting/crochet tools?

For this step-by-step tutorial we used The Cordage Yarn and Pima Cotton, and one of our beech wood crochet hooks in size 8 (5mm).

Before beginning, here’s the link to a video on how to single crochet so you can review it. It’s the only stitch you will need to know to follow this tutorial.

This is a very easy and quick technique since it’s only about wrapping the cotton yarn (the fine fiber) around the cord, so when you work a single crochet the cord is left inside, which creates a beautiful effect.

If you want to watch it in a more clear way, we have made a video so you can watch how we do it live:

You can use this technique with multiple combinations and it’s perfect to create textures when working projects such as baskets or blankets.
