This type of cord is simple to do and can be used for most of the Romanian Point Lace models where the narrow cord is required. Is approx. 3-4 mm wide , very good to use for small projects or flowers and leaves in the interior of RPL models. For edges is most recommended a wider cord to increase the contrast and beauty.
Try to crochet the cord a bit loose because like this is more easy to stitch the embroidery after the cord is basted on the pattern.
Basic pattern is :
Abbreviations: sc- simple chain, TL- turn left
Chain 2 loosely, 1 sc in ch1, TL , 1 sc in second chain ,* TL, 1 sc in second chain ,both loops* .
*1 sc in both loops formed lateral, TL *
repeat from * to * to achieve desired length
The cord :
You can crochet in front of TV or in a waiting room as many meters you want and use them after in different projects.
Bast the cord on the cloth transferred pattern and cut cord , one cm longer at the end . Clean the threads from the end using your nails and the cord will unravel till the desired length . The thread from the end can be used to join the end with another cord according to the pattern.
The rest of the cord will be used in a new project.Next time , the beginning of the cord ,cleaned of small threads will have 0.5 or 1cm of thread that will be hidden when you start to do the embroidery .
