Adding Paracord to Water Bottles and another Paracord Can Koozie... Here are a couple of examples of adding paracord to water bottles. 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. Here's a woven paracord can koozie, done with a 25 foot length of cord.
Paracord Bullwhip Hello everybody! I've been enjoying this site for long and have finally found enough time to write a first Instructable by myself. I'll will share with you how to make a real paracord bullwhip. It should not be that hard for those of you who know their way through ropes, knots and braiding. We will be making a 2.50m ( ~8.2ft) whip, from handle tip to fall, not including the cracker. Take your time with this one, you'll get what you give. The result was well worth it, this thing cracks loudly and easily as expected and it ended up being a very rewarding project. I'd like to thank "Bullwhipcracker" for his nice info about whip making that served as an inspiration for this project and saved me some headaches about figuring out the correct lengths for the different steps. Now, let's get to the fun stuff :) Update: Here's a short vid showing that it's indeed the real deal.
