Step 2: Arranging the Paracord Strands

For simplicity sake, I have used 4 different coloured cords and spliced them together to make 2 cords of 2 different colours. I like to use the C-clamp to clamp the snap to a tabletop so that my work stays steady. You can also just use a scrap of paracord and tie the snap to a table leg, stair railing or anything else that is stable. But using this method will make your work twist about and can be frustrating. Now lay the two pieces of the paracord side by side, over the ring of the snap.
<p>How would you add beads to the leash?</p>
<p>Great Instructions!!! Only issue I saw was that Your calculation uses way to much paracord for a 5 foot leash. I used that exact amount and was able to go all the way to a 6'5&quot; leash. So anyone reading this just use a little less paracord than the calculation comes out to.</p>
<p>Orange and Grey one about 6 months old now.</p><p>Black and Grey made today is 1.5mtrs long (each length of paracord was 5.2mtrs long, so each of the 4 strands was 2.6mtrs long.</p><p>Great tute! </p>
<p>I am sure it's just me but I see only three colors in all your pictures. For instance in Pic 3 I see one continuous black cord running from far left to far right then a grey cord second from left and pink second from right. This has made it hard to follow. Maybe I should have my vision color tested; I just haven't had this problem before. Am I the only one? tks</p>
<p>i see black brown grey and pink</p>
<p>No, I see 4 brown, black, pink, and grey.</p>
just a Guess here but do you preshrink gutted or full paracord?
<p>use a lighter!</p>
Took only for hours to make a none foot one. thanks for the instructable
four foot that is
Thanks! Definitely going to do this. Does anyone know if there a good place to buy or order the clips in bulk?
Great instructable. Took me a while to figure out the back braiding, but once I got that, the end result is awesome.
Bazinga !
well done.
I will make the suggestion to double wrap the cord around the metal of the ring. <br />This will distribute the pulling force over more area to prevent the ring cutting the cord and it will fill the ring so there is no side to side chafing of the cord. <br /> <br />Nice job.
Awesome! My friend has a dog, so I know what present she'll receive tomorrow=) <br /> <br />http://do25ti.ru/
Thanks so much! I bought some nylon cord to make a leash with and also want to add beads to it. What size paracord is this leash made with?
This is amazing! I have not come across a tutorial on how to make a dog leash made from paracord. It's great to see your step by step process here! Your instructions are very simple and clear. I would try to do that and hopefully will give it to my friend's pet.

Awesome! Was really frustrating at first, I kept losing my place in the braid and forgetting what I was doing. The second attempt went much quicker and smoother.
I actually found and followed this tutorial from your blog before I saw it here. This was my first paracord project, although I have played with this same braid before. <br>It really turned out great, and I am motivated to try some new projects. Thanks for a well done instructable!
take a soldering iron, or and old iron, and heat smusch the end to look like a trumpet bell, it would give the piece a finished look and be harder for the material to pull out<br /> <br /> looks great<br /> <br /> <br /> jack
Very nice instructable.&nbsp; I'm glad someone has finally made a noteworthy instructable outlining this braid.&nbsp; I've used the same braid with gutted paracord to make neck lanyards for ID&nbsp;badges.&nbsp; I made a 3-1/2 foot leash for our Pekingese because it's easier to control him in the car.&nbsp; He loves to go for car rides.
