TWISTED CORD: Cut 2 strands or 4 strands of yarn (depending on desired thickness of strap), 72" each in length. Bring the cut ends together and tie a knot close to the ends forming a large loop. Secure the knotted end to a stable surface or have a friend hold the end. Slip a pencil into the loop and hold the yarn just below the loop and the pencil. Holding the yarn taut, twirl the pencil, thereby twisting the yarn, until the entire length is tightly twisted and begins to twist back upon itself. Bring the loop end and the knotted end together. Tie with an overhand knot. Trim the ends. Smooth out the kinks so that the cord lies flat and is evenly twisted along its length.

ABBREVIATIONS: K = knit; mm = millimeters; P = purl; rep = repeat; St st = Stockinette stitch (Knit on right side rows; Purl on wrong side rows.); st(s) = stitch (es); * = repeat whatever follows the * as indicated.
