AZURE KNITS BLOG: Free Pattern! Quick Cable Slouch Hat//Hat constructions - StumbleUpon This is a pattern I had made to teach my student how to make her first cabled hat, so I made sure it was not intimidating.

Slatts Paracord Rescue Bracelet (no buckle) I love paracord, both for its countless uses and the fact that it looks really cool when woven into bracelets, belts, straps, etc. I work backstage and am always looking for a good way to carry a large amount of cord on me that can be easily accessed. I found The Slatts Rescue Belt and decided to see if I could weave one into itself without using a buckle. The results came out to be a nice looking bracelet that can be undone in a matter of seconds. Step 1: What You'll Need -Paracord 550.
