This is a necklace I made from 550 paracord. I had seen some necklaces that people made but they all seamed to big or not practical. I wanted something like a Phiten. So I searched the internet for a weave and came up with the 4 Strand Round Weave. I had never seen a paracord necklace made this way so I just went to it and this is what I got. Its not terribly difficult and its pretty fun. It's a fun craft to make with the family too. I made my whole family them. Although it looks good, it can also be taken apart and used in a survival situation. I hope you enjoy it and I'd love some feedback! Sorry about the marginal picture quality. My camera is not that great.
Step 1: Materials
For this project you will need:
* Paracord(read on for length)
*Scissors( or other cutting device)
*A lighter to fuse the rope
Step 2: Mesure your Neck
To Measure you neck, take a piece of scrap paracord (or other sting ect.) and wrap it around your neck. Figure out how you want the necklace to fit and adjust the rope acordingly. I went for more of a choker style neclace but its up to you. Mark the length and measure the cord. Now to find out the amount of paracord you'll be using use this formula- 1in. of necklace = 41/2 in. of each color of paracord. For example, I'm making a 15in. necklace, then I'll need 67.5 in of each color to make the necklace. I would also recommend adding 1/2 a foot to a foot to each measurement just so you have some wiggle room. Cut and fuse the rope.
