Howdy, this is a blog where I try to incorporate my hobby of using paracord into western tack and other useful projects. I use this blog to provide pictures and descriptions of my work in order to show and educate others who enjoy this craft. Even thought I enjoy tying all kinds of knots, this blog is dedicated to tying and creating actual useful items. I get most of my inspiration from my grandpa, Ashley Book of Knots, things around Pinterest, and Stormdrane.

My brother had a problem with finding a good quality keeper to pass his rope through. We came up with a few of different ideas on how it should be made. First was using a 6 strand round braid and making two 3 strand braids that split and come back together to form a hole. It would have worked, but it turned too thick for our purpose. So I settled with a four strand round braid and made the hole by twisting the two ropes together to form a loop.
The last one uses the six strand round braid but I used some leftover microcord, and it satisfied the thickness and look I was originally going for.
