The Rosary is a method of prayer used primarily by Catholics. It utilizes beads on a string or chain that are used to keep track of which prayer you are saying while you are meditating on the mysteries of the Gospels. To learn more about the rosary check out www.rosaryarmy.com/
. I learned how to make rosaries out of twine a couple of years ago from these folks, and when I deployed I decided to try and make one out of paracord. Some of my fellow soldiers really liked the idea of a Rosary that was a little more masculine than the traditional Rosary. This makes a great gift for service members or to donate to a nearby military installation.
For your first attempt you will need about 40 feet of paracord. As you get better you will need less because your knots will be tighter. You will also need scissors or a knife, and a lighter. A crucifix or cross can be attached if you like but I will show you how to make a cross from the paracord.
