Crochet Ideas – Part 1 Crocheting Around Rope and Cord

Hi everyone, sorry for being very quite recently but wasn’t feeling very well (nothing bad). I will try my best to post regularly on here to provide you with some interesting crochet content. I came up with this idea to do a series of crochet articles about new trends in crochet and various interesting crochet ideas on how to use your crochet skills.

This is first blog post in these series. :).

This week I will be writing about CROCHETING AROUND ROPE, CORD AND MORE .

Crocheting over or around the cord has probably been invented a while ago but all I’ve seen before was crocheting around the headphones cord or phone charger etc. Recently I’ve spotted a new trend crocheting over the cotton cord or a rope to create a more rigid crochet items like crochet bowls, crochet baskets, crochet backpacks, soles etc.

Where to buy the cotton cord and rope? I’ve found a lot of different types on Amazon:

Check out this lady on the instagram under etnobaba who creates most amazing crochet items with cotton cord and yarn.

This is some of the work of Krystyna/etnobaba:

Here is another interesting crochet tutorial on how to make a crochet rope basket. This one is using rope instead of cotton cord which gives this lovely old cottage look that is so in fashion now:

Using colourful rope is fun too as seen on this blog.


Some people go even wilder in their crochet creations. Look at this LED Crochet Rug made by crocheting around a LED lights. Original desing by Johanna Hyrkäs.
Hope you liked this crochet ideas and happy crocheting!
