Easy Crochet Cord Tutorial Using the Lobster Stitch

I decided that I wanted to put a crochet cord on my new shower pouf that was more than just a simple chain–something that had a little bit of thickness to it and would add to the overall design. I decided to make the crochet cord using the lobster stitch.

How to Crochet Cord Using the Lobster Stitch


  • Yarn – 100% Cotton if you are making it for a shower pouf, or any type of yarn for bracelet-making or grocery bag strap handles.

  • Crochet Hook – H/8 5.00mm (Use a larger hook if thicker yarn is used)

  • Scissors

  • Yarn Needle (for weaving into project)


Make this cord to be the appropriate length, leaving a 6″ tail after you finish off for easily attaching to your project.
