That's nice work, Ken. Looks good!Originally Posted by kcardwel
Um, bad news as far as 550 cord, though. It does shrink after getting wet. In the book I have about braiding tack with paracord, they advise soaking paracord in warm water for a while and then letting it dry. They say it shrinks almost 10%!
I have used a lot of it to make closing loops for skydive rigs (they are very simple, finger-trapped loops), and they can be made easily ONLY when the cord is not shrunk before they are finger-trapped.
Here is a picture of what they look like when finished. (This one is in the form of a bracelet.)
