Romanian cords have stunning visual appeal and are well suited to a number of applications including purse straps, drawstrings, ties, and belts, just to name a few. You'll need to start with a few set up stitches, then just continue a simple stitch repeat for the remainder of the cord.
STEP 1 (set up stitches): Note: It is important to keep the tension quite loose.
Chain 2, then work a single crochet into the second chain from the hook. Keep note of the chain you did not work into, it will create a small loop.
Rotate the cord clockwise 180 degrees and work a single crochet into the small loop.
STEP 2 (subsequent stitches): Rotate the cord clockwise 180 degrees, you will now see 2 loops running horizontally. Complete a single crochet, working into these two horizontal loops.
Repeat this step until your Romanian cord reaches your desired length.
