Lace Bag

I uploaded a new pattern to Ravelry today. :D I needed a dice bag for L5R and as usual, improvised the pattern. I liked it so much that I wrote it up so that I can share it.

Making Twisted Cords

Twisted cords give a professional finish to any fringed project and are a good end treatment for a piece of tablet weaving. In this tutorial these yarn tails or extra pieces of yarn are referred to as ends.

Take a group of 2 or more ends in each hand.

Twist each group clockwise. 

Tie the two groups together using an overhand knot.

Twist the groups anti-clockwise as one.
