Learn to Crochet - Slip Stitch Cord Video Tutorial

A few weeks ago, I shared a link to Daphne's Crochet Cords Tutorial which shows 3 different types of crocheted cords. Below you will find a video showing how to crochet the first of these cords called the Slip Stitch Cord.

Crocheted cords can be used in many different ways but I think the most common is as a drawstring in a bag or purse. I have also seen cords used as decorations on hats, scarves, pillows, sweaters and other items too. Formed into decorative shapes, the cord is stitched onto an item using little tacking stitches or basting stitches and matching colored thread or yarn.

There are many ways to crochet or knit cords and I will be showing you how to do some of them in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, make sure you sign up for my 300th post giveaway to win a set of handmade dish or washcloths in your choice of colors. #300 is fast approaching so don't wait!

Happy Stitching!
