Introduction: Paracord Steering Wheel Wrap
i have an older Jeep Grand Cherokee. its gotten quite a bit of use over the years. The steering wheel is now very smooth and slippery especially if I'm wearing gloves (since i live in Michigan this is pretty common). i am hoping the grip that i added will be warmer on bare hands too. I know your supposed to drive with your hands at 10 and 2 or 9 and 3 or whatever but i usually just hold on to the bottom holes on my steering wheel so that is all i wanted to cover with paracord (if i really like the bottom parts i might end up doing the rest too). it would be the same technique to do the whole thing
you could use this same technique to wrap basically anything i know i've wrapped flashlights and also rolls of paracord to keep them from getting tangled.
Step 1: Starting Off
i did this 2 different ways. i changed the first way i did it because i couldn't keep anything tight. the way i used on the left side is what i changed the first way to. where the tag end goes under the working end (very hard to explain in words)
Step 2: Wraping
now that the paracord is tied off at where your going to start you can start the very repetitive process of single knots.
Step 3: Continue
continue these knots. the threads part will resemble the ends of a cobra stitch bracelet.
Step 4: Compress Stitches Together
Step 5: Finishing Off
i didnt get many good pictures of this step but i basically used the same method as starting off. i pasted the end under the previous knot so it was "locked in" so to speak. then just cut and melt the ends.
