Perfect for the beginner, which I certainly am.
Todd Mikkelsen's Paracord! offers a diverse collection of projects that utilize parachute cordsknown around the world as paracord. Used by paratroopers and other military personnel during World War II, this lightweight nylon rope is now one of the most sought-after materials by crafters.
Its durability and flexibility make it perfect for creating everyday accessories such as belts, bracelets, buckles, necklaces, dog leashes and collars, key chains, and more. As you will see in Mikkelsen's book, this rope comes in various colors, from army green to hot pink, making it easy to personalize every type of project.
In Paracord!, you'll find step-by-step instructions that take you through every project. Each step is accompanied by a photo that clearly illustrates the process. In addition to learning how to make these accessories, Mikkelsen also includes introductory chapters preparing your paracord for crafting, tying different types of knots, and caring for and cleaning your completed paracord projects.
"It's a rare book that has the potential to interest young people who like to make bracelets and lanyards out of colorful cord as well as the survivalist/prepper audience, but this one just might." --Library Journal
