Braided Extension Cords

Few things are more frustrating than a hopelessly tangled extension cord. However, these artists might disagree with me. In fact, they turn regular cords into braided and knitted works of art!

This tightly wound cable by Karl Zahn was what first sparked my interest in cord braiding.


Adam Cruickshank made the monstrosity below with an over-sized Knitting Nancy.



Now I realize that this next item isn’t “braided” and it’s not even a real extension cord. But still, it’s pretty darn cool. This knit power cable by KnitKnit is actually a scarf. It’s available for purchase at KnitKnit’s Etsy store.
