cord size

Postby aggiecowgirl » Wed Dec 07, 2011 6:05 pm

I ordered #9 cord for the beaded cord rosarys and it is thicker than the cord I had before it. I wa wondering if the #12 is thinner than #9?
Thanks!

Aggiecowgirl, I suspect that #12 rosary cord might be 33% thicker than #9. I'm familiar with #9 and #36 (which is very thick). My #9 cord, from OLRM, is about 1/16" or 1 mm thickness (ballpark).

Hope this helps.

Peace be with you.

Marie,
Thanks for the information......guess I should have ordered the #7 since I assume it will be thinner. I love making the rosarys but the #9 just doesn't make a pretty knot for me.

God Bless!

Aggiecowgirl, something is not adding up. Size 9 should make a good knot! I'm wondering if the cord you purchased might be a craft cord or needlework cord instead of rosary cord.

If what you have is not labeled as rosary twine, there could be a completely different numbering system. (Years ago I made some items using "crochet cotton" where size 10 was the standard; size 20 was 1/2 as thick and size 5 was twice as thick... the opposite of rosary cord where a higher number means thicker twine.)

#9, #21 and #36 are sizes of rosary cord that can be purchased online, but #7 doesn't ring a bell to me. (Sorry, I was confusing #12 and #21 sizes earlier because I'm not familiar.)

God bless you.
