That is one beautiful necklace is it not?

Paracord necklaces share the same awesome characteristics as most paracord items.

- The ease of making, paracord strings are easy to knot

- Durability, paracord is super durable

- Utility, did you know that paracord items can be broken down and used for various purposes. From a clothes line to a fishing set up, it can all be done!

- Quality, anything you make yourself is top quality!

- Cheap, making your own stuff is usually a lot less pricey

- Smooth, very nice on the skin, unlike some cord/string types.

In the blog you will discover beautiful patterns for your para cord necklaces and the instructions and supplies to make them!

Paracord necklaces are, comparing to other types (for example hemp) a lot more resistant to water, easier to make, come in more vivid colors, multi purpose. Because of the ease of string manipulation, these necklaces can be made with advanced and interesting knotting patterns.

I recommend this book - For all your knotting needs

I recommend this book in all my blogs on knotting when i have the chance.

It is an amazing tool for making any sort of knotting project.

Starting your first paracord necklace - Paracord necklace instruction #1

This necklace is a beautiful example of a spiral knot necklace. Spiral knot is one of the easiest and for me the basic knot with which to learn knotting and especially making necklaces. I must admit though, that this specific necklace is made from hemp, as you can see it is quite rough. Paracord is a lot more smooth. I chose this picture because the necklace is made with a spiral knot and is, frankly gorgeous.

See below the instructions on how to make one!

Spiral paracord necklace instruction - Let us make one, or five, maybe?

When making your first paracord necklace, always take into the account that you need some extra space so try the string around your neck and see how long is it. Then take about double that size to be sure. When you have more practice you can optimise your string lenghts but for now let us call that a safe bet!

The lady on the video below makes a great lesson on how to use a spiral knot. Follow her instructions and see how you do!

What do i need for making a paracord necklace? - Not much frankly!

The basic paracord necklace is a cheap hand made item suitable for wear, but also makes a wonderful gift.

For making it you only need a decent 550 paracord (550 is the number of pounds it can hold, it is a para cord after all!). I suggest you try the Amazon search below to find the colors you want for your first bracelet.

After you have the cord, i would use a similar contraption to the one the lady in the video uses to hold the string immobilised. A simple nail in a plank does the job just fine.
