Re: Fun with Paracord! (or) Misadventures with Paracord!

I like this a lot! Do you have a tutorial on it yet? Not yet. This was a third try for me on this project, after a good bit of trial and error, tying/untying, and although I was satisfied with how it finally came out, there's still room for improvement/tweaks and playing around with alternative met...

Re: Fun with Paracord! (or) Misadventures with Paracord!

Paracord crown sinnet cross with circle/ring. I'll have to see if I can find some thinner guage solid rings in brass or copper at the hardware store, something not as thick as the key/split rings where their thickness causes a bit of deformation where they're tied around the ring... http://x6c.xanga...

Re: Fun with Paracord! (or) Misadventures with Paracord!

Here's a single strand star knot used with a fixed blade knife, where the loop can be worked up against the handle for a no-snag type lanyard with the single strand hanging down being less likely to catch on brush while hiking. The loop can be extended for wrist wear or thumb and loop behind the han...

Paracord suspenders to help keep my britches up. The paracord is tied over shock cord, so although they're not adjustable, being measured to fit me and clip to the belt loops of my pants(BDU type), they are comfortable to wear since they can stretch a bit, with sitting/standing/bending, and moving a...
