If you're reading this, you probably know just how awesome paracord is. However a struggle that has followed me around as long as I've used paracord, has been the tangles. Now, knots are cool, but only when you want them to be there. It's always been difficult for me to take my paracord on the road, store them, put them in my backpack, etcetera, without pulling it out to be full of tangles.

But no longer. That is all going to change with this weave.

Step 1:

I find this weave unique, because while it looks tightly woven and knotted, with a few quick pulls it becomes a dispenser. It can unweave as much or as little, as fast or as slow, as you need at a time. Just pull on the loop at the end, and start pulling. It unravels slowly to give you as much length as you need and no more.

Here is the disk being unraveled:

Thank you so much!! it's works outstanding. The only downside is that it takes forever to make!
<p>I love this. cord as its own storage device, no excess pieces to run out of or carry around empty. Perfect for the minimalist.</p>
<p>I used this weave to very easily make a 550 cord wrap for my truck's steering wheel, which after 26 years had hardened and worn smooth &amp; slick. The cord made for an outstanding grip and thanks to this weave I could easily cover it. Plus if I end up needing it in a pinch, now all I have to do is grab and pull. The bottom section is about 50ft of cord and the upper just over 100ft. Works great!</p>

<p>great idea!</p>
<p>Love the idea for keeping my paracord tangle free and organized! You have got my vote.</p>
<p>Wow, thanks a ton! I hope it helps you ever so much. Have a wonderful day!</p>
<p>Very useful! I think this definitely deserves a win. :-)</p>
<p>This truly means a lot to me. Thank you very much!</p>
<p>You're very welcome! I would have commented even sooner, but I somehow 'unfollowed.' Glad to get that fixed! :-)</p>
That's insane!
go to a try :)
This is really cool! I've been using double and quadruple sennet chains for my para cord, which is quicker to make I think, but it leaves you 1-3 ends sticking out after you cut off what you need, and it can get to be a hassle sometimes. I think this is an improvement.
<p>Hey thanks! Yes, this was definitely a bit time consuming when I first learned it myself, however I find I can do it easily enough while multitasking these days. Do you have any pictures of what a quadruple sinnet chain looks like? It sounds awesome but I can't find any pictures of it. If you do, please share! Thanks for reading. (:</p>
<p>Not yet, but I'll upload some. See <a href="http://www.animatedknots.com/chainsinnet/index.php?Categ=decorative&LogoImage=LogoGrog.jpg&Website=www.animatedknots.com" rel="nofollow">http://www.animatedknots.com/chainsinnet/index.php...</a> but imagine the rope folded in half once or twice. </p>
<p>That's what I do as well!</p>
I love this technique. I started using it a while ago as a way to manage long lengths of cord while weaving big projects. Now I store all my P-cord this way. Thanks for posting.
<p>No problem! I dig it too. It's supposedly been around for a while, but I just learned about it recently and I'm never going back!</p>
