Round 22: Ch 1, 2 sc in each ch-1 space around; join with
a slip st in first sc. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
Make 1 or 2 twisted cords starting with a 3-yard length of
yarn for each. 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.
Weave each cord through the ch-1 spaces of Round 21 (in
opposite directions if using 2). Knot ends of cord together;
