    I took OD green and fluorescent orange ( really it is...) paracord and made a six foot leash. I spliced the braid back into itself to hold the metal clip and for the handle of the leash. Thank you for the lesson!

    Well, I found just over 7' of green and 14' of brown para cord in my garage. It was just enough to make a 5' piece. Hope I got it right this time.

    Here is where the doubled up section meets the single section:

    I went a head and made it 30 feet so that I can use it for my Ridgeline as well. Braiding with two like colors and one different color can really mess with your eyes. I'm not sure if I like the colors so if I decide to make it different Ridgeline I'll be doing the 2 strand reverse twist to do my next one because I really hated this braiding project. So glad I have this one checked off ! I just burnt the ends together nothing special. IMG_4935.JPG IMG_4936.JPG

    Braided eye and whipped/fused end. Just over 25 feet. I have to say, this was so much easier than the two strand twist IMO.
