How to Crochet the Knot Cord

Of all the crochet cords that I could find online, the Knot Cord is definitely my favorite one!

The Knot Cord looks a bit like an ear of wheat, it is quite flat, and works up incredibly fast.

Compared to the i cord, or even the Romanian Cord, there are fewer movements required, making this cord faster to crochet than the other ones.

This beautiful and easy crochet cord is perfect for belts, bag handles, top straps, bracelets, and so much more.

In this blog post, you can find a step-by-step photo tutorial. However, a video tutorial is also available here on my YouTube channel.
