This fun colourful crochet project is made by making a number of crochet cords and joining them all together to form a chain.
Firstly we need to look at making crochet cords.
How to crochet the quick slip stitch cord
Firstly we need to make a number of cords. You can see a video below demonstrating how to make them (written instructions are underneath).
You can also view a left handed version here
To make the cord
Chain 3, join with slip stitch (sl st) to the 3rd chain from hook
Work a sl st through the single, top loop of each of the 3 chains.
Turning the cord as you go, work a sl st into the top (back) loop of each sl st and continue round and round and round until you achieve the length of chain you are looking for.
Mine each measure about 8in.
Fasten off, leaving a tail
TO MAKE THE CHAIN
Take your first starting cord and sew the ends together using the tails to create the first link.
Take the next cord and loop it through the first, sewing the ends together to create the next link.
Add the rest of the cords to the previous link to make your chain. Make as many cords as you want and you can add more as you go to increase the length.
