Default Paracord projects

Not sure where to put this. It could go in survival, club house, DIY projects but I just picked this so forgive me if it's not properly placed.

Any way I just wanted to post a few things that I've put together from paracord , mostly just copying from the internet but innovating on a few things. Any way I'm just gonna post some pics.

I started off on the bracelet then went to the lanyard and just tonight finished the sling. Let me know your thoughts and I'll try my best to answer any questions you have. I hope you can glean something useful from this thread.

Each side of the sling has a different pattern, that's just the nature of the type of weave I chose. The sling is approximately 42 inches long. I didn't know how long to make it so I just went with what felt comfortable while trying it out on my 10;22

Nice. Where did you find instructions?

I have only used two types of weaves when making these lil guys. The first is called the cobra weave and is really simple it is the one you see that is the skinny part of the sling and is what I used to make the lanyard. The lanyard looks different because I went over it twice to make it thicker. The second type of weave is called a Solomon weave and is just using six strings instead of the 3 on the cobra weave.



After learning those two I just went to town and had some fun.

Thanks 2hot. I probably won't attempt it, but it's always nice to know how stuff is done.

I've been wanting to make some of these. I've figured out how to make the cobra weave, but I want something a little wider. I was just wondering how wide the "wide soloman" was. Thanks in advanced.
