How to crochet a cord

I have a nice knitting spool, one with a large hole that fits comfortably in the hand. Separate pins are included so you can use up to eight or five pins as you like. However, I run into the fact that spool knitting with thick/rigid wool is still difficult.

It takes too much physical effort, and I’m afraid that I’ll strain my muscles if I do it for too long. I don’t feel like an overuse injury!
Fortunately, I found a video on youtube that explained how to crochet the same cord with a crochet hook.

As long as the crochet hook is thick enough it goes smoothly by itself and takes much less effort. No one will see the difference!
By the way, I now see that on youtube there are many more possibilities to crochet beautiful cords: have a look at them …!
