Easy Cord Cover

Now that I've finished up my Christmas knitting (for 2019), I find myself at loose ends. I mean, I have projects that I could be working on, but I haven't felt like doing much of anything.

So, I started covering my cords.

I wrote about this a while ago. When I got a new phone, I covered the power cord, and more importantly, the earbuds' cord with an I-cord. The power cord is just for pretty. The earbuds' cord tangles easily, so covering the cord actually helps.


Back in December, I upgraded my phone. So, I had new bare cords. But I was busy with Christmas knitting, so it sat and waited.

I think I need something quick and easy. I started with the power cord. But instead of an I-cord, I wrapped the yarn around and did a sort of, kind of slip stitch thing.


I rather like it. I especially like the yarn, but that makes sense as it's the same yarn I used on an I-cord for this same purpose before.


Now, I just need to figure out what yarn I'm going to use for the earbuds.

  4. Leave those cords alone for five seconds and when you come back, the're tangled. What a good idea. Pretty colors, too.

    1. The color is called confetti, I think. The yarn is Caron's Simply Soft.

  7. That's a cool idea. I might do that to my ear buds for the gym (the only place I wear them). They are bluetooth but have a cable that runs around the back of my neck and it's a bit uncomfortable, but that would be a nice solution.

    1. I wish I could take credit for it, but like all my best ideas, I stole it from someone else.

  10. I love that....And I love the color on this one. I was asking on fb the best way to hide cords on tvs and computers just a couple weeks ago. Might not be able to hide them all but hey like this I could make them all pretty.

    1. I've seen many ways to hide cords, depending on your setup. Making them pretty could work, too.

  11. Love the rainbow look and it is very pretty. This makes me think of the wire hangers that a friend would braid some rounded silk fabric cord around the wire

  13. Pretty and bright. If I had cords that needed beautifying, I'd try this.
