Crochet Romanian Cord Tutorial

Updated: Feb 26, 2020

Hi everyone! I just completed my sunflower bag and wanted to share a tutorial for the Romanian Cord that I made for the straps of the bag. I have used this cord to make lanyards and really loved it so I thought I could use it for the straps. I doubled up on the yarn for my bag however you will see that I only used one strand of bulky weight for demonstration purposes only.

It may feel a little awkward at first because you're working into loops that you don't normally work into (for me at least). I would recommend crocheting loosely so it's easier to work.

Turn your work again. This time you will work through 2 loops in next row.
