The Simplest Paracord Designs

The Simplest Paracord Designs
Suggested projects for paracord crafting beginners



When I came to Paracord Planet a year and a half ago, I knew virtually nothing about knotting. Aside from making a few bracelets at various summer camps growing up I really hadn’t had much crafting experience in my life. Naturally, I was apprehensive to begin. The first design that I ever successfully made was the “Fishtail Weave.” I started to build some more confidence and by the time I had worked here for three months, I was able to get down the Cobra, Sawtooth, and Extreme design with relative ease. Prior to ever being able to craft paracord projects, however, I had to familiarize myself with the material. Paracord, a kernmantle rope that was originally used by paratroopers in World War II, was never imagined to be as versatile as we have later discovered that it truly is. Although I’ll never have the crafting abilities of JD Lenzen, Dman McQ, and some of the other big names in the paracord industry, I feel comfortable enough with the rope to make some awesome creations in my spare time at work. I owe a lot of thanks to these simple designs below for helping to ease me into paracord crafting. If you're a beginner, too, try out the following designs and build your confidence in your own crafting abilities!
