So, not quite what I planned, but how about a quick little tutorial on a rope bracelet? You see, I had to clean my house today and didn't have time to make a full rope scarf, which is a similar sort of idea, but a bit more involved (I can't give away all of my tricks, now can I ;) ).
Here's what you need:
3x 14ft lengths of bulky wool (or any reasonably thick yarn)
9mm/ Size 13 Crochet Hook
(Crocheters, this is just a thick length of chain. Instructions below are for non-crocheters)
Holding the 3 ends of yarn together, tie a slip knot. Leave at least a 4inch tail after the knot.
Insert your hook into the loop and pull tight.
Repeat the 2 previous steps until your rope measures 40 inches in length
You should be left with a reasonably lengthy tail of yarn at the working end of the chain. Pull this through your last loop. Ensuring your rope isn't twisted, tie the ends together using a normal knot
Slip the bracelet off and hold in your non-dominant hand, holding the strand of rope that goes across the project firmly.
Tie the two ends off in a knot.
I did say I was supposed to be cleaning the house.
