Adding Paracord to Water Bottles and another Paracord Can Koozie...

A 25 foot length was used for the one in a 'whipping' pattern on the aluminum water bottle. And a 40 foot length was used in a woven pattern on the white stainless steel water bottle. Both started off with coiling the cord around the bottles, with the starting end just held in place with a rubber band and later tucked to finish. The 'whipping'(snaking) version, an example is seen in Geoffrey Budworth's 'The Complete Book of Knots', is easily zigzagged and looped around a couple of coils on each end of the paracord coiled wraps, and tucked to finish. The woven version resembles 'grafting' type knot work, as seen in Stuart Grainger's 'Creative Ropecraft', but is instead a single length of cord.

I used a Perma-Lok Jumbo Lacing Needle to feed the paracord over/under as I worked, as well as a pair of hemostats/forceps. Animated Knots Tutorials By Grog. Celtic Heart Knot. Sailmaker's Whipping Knot (For Rope Ends) Dog Toys For Heavy Chewers. Knot Trivet.

After seeing theMegaDoily at Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m a firm believer that no doily can ever be too big, is there a world record for the world’s largest doily? I’d like to know! These ones shown here, may or may not hold the record, but the charm is not lost in the scale. Designed by Jean Lee, these are hand knotted with cotton rope, using vintage doily patterns they make pretty rugs, and idea so simple, I wonder how is it possible our grandmothers weren’t making these?
