Have you ever thought about crocheting with paracord?

Well, I didn't either, until I started to think about different ways to use paracord. Its strength can be useful for many purposes so imagine how many things you can make with it.

Since I mostly have thin cotton thread but always wished I could crochet with a real thick yarn I thought that this was the perfect occasion for me to try something similar...and it worked!

All you need is paracord and a crochet hook big enough for it (I used a 5mm hook).

Let's start!

Step 1: First Round

Grab your crochet hook and paracord and chain 3, as you would normally do with regular yarn.
If you tend to crochet tightly, like I do, I recommend you to work in a much more loose way in onder to be able to pass the hook through the loops.*

When you are done with the 3 chains, close in round making a slip stitch in the first chain.

*Believe it or not, I actually ended up breaking the tip of my wooden crochet hook when I first started this! So keep the cord as loose as possible...and, if you can, use an aluminium hook, I think it will be stronger.
