More specifically: if you do a finger-looped spiral, use 4 loop of crochet
or pearl cotton. It's possible to use 6 loops, but then the loops have to
be a lot longer because the cord eats more yarn, and if you're not good at
working with both your hands and both your feet at the same time, the cord
will end up being too short. A 6-loop cord is getting to be a *little*
thick; a 8-loop cord is definitely too thick to go through most holes or
medallion rings. THL Keran uses a lovely braid, but I had little less luck
If you want to know how to work with both hands and feet, let me know. It's
fun once you get the hang of it.

I make lots of the cording so I thought I'd send you an answer -
Length - 30 to 36 in. - as long cord will go over anyone's neck.
Red and white are the kingdom colors
Cord should not be too thick so that it will go through holes in medallions.
I usually take them to an event where there are Royals or Kingdom officers..
It's easiest to give them in a baggie so they can be kept together until
they reach the proper .
