This Instructable will demonstrate how to attach Paracord to a stitching needle. This may seem like an unnecessary Instructable at first, but I deemed it necessary because I did not figure it out immediately.

Step 1: Supplies

All you need to do this is a Paracord stitching needle, some Paracord, a lighter, scissors, and a rag.

Step 2: Prepare the Cord

Cut the cord to length, burn it, and take your rag and pull it over the burnt end. This will prevent the typical bulbous end.

Step 3: Thread the Needle

Your stitching needle should be threaded. Now that we have our Paracord prepared (the rag made it skinny on the end so it will fit in the needle); we can essentially screw it in to the back of the needle. Push your Paracord in and twist the needle in the direction that it is threaded.

Step 4: Done!

Now that you know how to thread your Paracord stitching needle, you are ready for things like the turks head knot and weaving!
