Let's make a dog collar!
My favorite dog collar design is made with the process of knotting. The process is easy and makes a beautiful and sturdy collar. You can make this collar in two colors, like i will show in the following segments, or just one color, if you so desire.
For this project i used 40 feet of paracord 550 in colors neon orange (22 feet) and black (18 feet). Other useful items you will need for this collar are a pair of scissors or a knife and a lighter to melt the edges.
The steps in making the collar are as follows:
- attach a buckle on one end or the base cord
- attach the other part of the buckle the distance away from the first one that is the length of your dogs neck
- attach a D-ring with which you clip the leash on the collar
- immobilize the two center strings with the buckles to make your work easier
- make the cobra stitch collar
- if you want a bulkier collar, continue with the king cobra cover (the black cord on top of the orange one)
