Crochet Ribbed Cord Keeper

Hi friends,

Do you have charger cords EVERYWHERE??? Phone, tablet, laptop, kindle – just to name a few! What to do?? Crochet some cord keepers, of course. 🙂

I wrote up the pattern I used to crochet my Ribbed Cord Keeper and shared it below. I found my cute buttons at Hobby Lobby and used Baby Bee Hushabye yarn in Toy Elephant with a 4mm hook to stitch up my cord keepers. The gray color is discontinued, but there are several other colors and any 4 weight yarn will work. So use what you have – these are great stash busters!
