Step 2: Stripping the cable

I had some cable left over from an old keyboard that I took apart for another project.  Inside the cable I had four wires plus another which didn't have a plastic covering, this consisted of a bundle of 10 thin wires.  I separated the thin wires into bundles of three and used that to crochet my snowflake.  To connect the wires to make it longer just twist the ends together.

Very nice. I am making something similar for the advent calendar.
Cool, I guess we'll have to wait until the 23rd to see it.
On the 23rd I will have some code written for the Arduino...<br><br>Can you program?
Sadly no, but one day I hope to try my hand at working with Arduino.
I guess the <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Twinkle-Twinkle-Little-Star/" rel="nofollow">snowflake</a> idea didn't work...
The star is pretty cool, it would make a nice Christmas tree topper.
Thanks.
Pretty and SO CREATIVE!
Thanks!
That is awesome! I'm a beginning crocheter, how much skill does it take to crochet with wire?
It's not much different than using yarn. With the thickness of wire I used it is still quite pliable, with thicker wire it is more rigid and harder to work with. The only trouble I had was if I made a mistake and try to undo stitches the wire tends to kink.
Pretty! You're reminding me of some old wire jewelry I used to make... hmmm...
