This simple to do plate cord can be used on edges of projects and also in the interior of projects where wide cord is required. Wide approx 8 mm.
I used this cord here on the square doily just finished for July CAL on Rav , crochet hook no1,

And now, the story (of yesterday).
Most of you already know that I grow up in a communist country. I soon learned that being left handed is a kind of shame or disease and, if you can, is better to try to pretend that you are“ normal“ .
First class at school, despite the fact that I knew to write well ,thanking to my 2 years older brother, I was forced to learn again how to write correct- with the good hand, the right one.
My lovely teacher found that a good way to do this is to put a glove in my left hand and to tide it to my back with a cord (not Romanian cord). What do you want more for a small girl to feel “special“ ??brother
I still have flash backs with my mother whispering – do not use THAT hand, and later a lot of people around-Oh my god, you are left handed !!
Finally I learned to do almost all things like “normal“ people and I still try to hide “the disease“. I learned also that being different( left handed, gay,dyslexic, autist) is not easy, not pleasant but is in your brain and it cannot be changed. Wish all the best to all normal or special people around.
Good night ladies
