Anyone ever start to take a walk, go to grab your earbuds and A: can't find them or B: they are a mess, well that was me the other day. My earbuds were a tangled mess. I don't know about you but I paid for really nice ones because my ear hole is tiny and regular ones hurt. So when I see my really nice earbuds (in a super cute color) tangled up and it takes a long time to unravel them, I get upset. I need an earbud keeper for my purse, I say to myself. I looked some up on Ravelry but didn't see any that I really liked. I decided to make one myself. So here is what I came up with...!!
I /5.5mm hook
WW yarn (Lily Sugar N' Cream was used for the demo)
dc= double crochet
Yo= yarn over
6 Dc bobble= Yo, pull up loop, Yo, pull through 2 loops on hook (leave the last loop on the hook). Repeat 5 more times until there are 7 loops on your hook. Yo and pull through all 7 loops.
TAG SHAPED OR RECTANGLE CORD KEEPER
1. Sc in 3rd chain from hook and in next 7. Ch.1, Turn (8)
2. Sc 3, ch.2, skip 2, sc 3. Ch. Turn
3. Sc 3, 2 sc in ch. space, sc 3. Ch.1, Turn
4-10. Sc in each. ch.1, Turn
11. Sc 3, 6 dc bobble in next, sc 4. Ch.1, Turn
12. Sc in each. Ch.1, Turn
13. Sc around the entire outside edge. B.O and weave in ends
Your cord keeper should measure 3x4 inches.
I also designed 2 more styles that are available on Raverly as a set. You don't have to use them for just earbuds. You could use them to tie any kind of cord around the house. Phone cords, USB cords, tv cords, etc.
