If you’re like me, you’re always getting your charging cables & headphones for your electronics all tangled up. This method will keep that problem from happening, and will also keep your cords from getting mixed up with cords belonging to others (and make your cords cute at the same time)!
Don’t do this though if your cords are frayed or if they get really hot when in use! Gotta stay safe!
what you’ll need:
- sock weight yarn
- an appropriate hook
- needle to sew in ends
how to do it:
Make a slipknot on your hook:
Holding the tail along the cord, make a sc (US) around the cord & tail:
Pulling the tail tight, continue making sc stitches (US) around the cord & tail:
Continue until you reach the end of the cord, tie off, & sew in the end. Ta-da!
This was made with wool yarn, since wool is hard to catch on fire compared with other yarn fibers. So was this one:
For my headphones I used a silk yarn because headphones don’t get hot like charging cords might, and it’ll be softer than wool when next to the skin. Where the headphones split, and where the remote is, I stopped and started anew on the other side:
That’s it! Hope you enjoy, and thanks for stopping by!
