    Paracord is such a handy item to have as it can be used for so many different things. I've seen several different ways to "carry" paracord, from bracelets and lanyards to handle wraps etc.

    Go ahead and share your pictures of paracord gear/items here.

    From experience you might want to lock up the cat in another room if you have one because you'll have 550 everywhere and they can't resist it. or maybe she was trying to help tie it in knots for me lol

    You've got that right. Our cat is constantly attacking the loose ends of cord while I'm making stuff.

    I've been making paracord bracelets since the Gulf War in 1991 and haven't stopped since!

    Do you know of a method to make two-tone bracelets without splicing colors?

    Here ya go. Just make sure your center color is in front of the trim color, and starts with the short end on the left (which will be the length of your piece). The other color goes behind, with the short end on the right...until you fold it in front to become a center piece. You just need to be deliberate with the first knot, keeping everything in place. After that you can adjust the loop, then go to town. Some pics I took real quick:

    Glad to help. When I make them with a buckle (which I do for everyone else I make them for), it's a lot easier lol, but this is easy too, once you do it a time or two :)

    Hopefully my new paracord jig will arrive this week so I can create some new dual tone stuff.

    Re: Post Your Paracord Items Here

    That looks sweet. It's almost like a small loom :)
    I learned to do it all in my hands, without having to tie it off anywhere, which works for messing with this stuff while sitting in a recliner watching the idiot box, or even when camping. But I bet you will be able to do more things than I with this set up.

    I did the same thing and learned by hand first. However this jig will help me stay more consistent with wrist sizes and also speed up the process. Looking forward to making some lanyard for all my crap.

    Those had to take a long time. My hatband and necklace took forever, so I can't imagine a sling.
