Just by changing the number of strands, the direction of initial twisting and by adding already twisted strands you can make many different combinations with just a few colors of yarns.  I made the shorter bits to be used as luggage I.D.s  for a family going on a trip. The longer strands are to be used as friendship bracelets.  Tony

Thank you Rick.  These are a lot of fun to make.  I remember kaking a crude version of these cords back in junior high in the early 50's.  We placed a loop of string over a hook and twisted it tight with a pencil inserted in the other end of the loop.  We doubled the twisted loop and let it counter-twist on itself.  A couple of minutes of pullling and we had a good yo-yo string.  Tony
