A troubling challenge, especially for those on the production/sales end of the paracord tying community, short lengths of cord are often left discarded, or worst yet, thrown away. But as my How to Make Paracord Jellyfish Fobs video (utilizing 1 foot lengths of cord) and now this video (utilizing 2 and 3 foot lengths of cord) will show, there's truly no such thing as a "wasted" length of paracord. Quite the contrary, as you'll soon see, with a little design ingenuity, nearly all cords lengths can be successfully used.

PFT-V2 Book Link: http://tinyurl.com/k6zmzjp The Triple Wide Zipper Sinnet holds a monster level of cord in a quick deployment, two cord, zipper sinnet, design! About two feet (per cord), per 1-inch of strap. A 30-inch long belt would hold nearly two 60-foot long cords (or 120-feet of cord, in total). Also…the technique allows you to make the belt as wide as you'd like it to be. In that, working with two cords, is just as easy as working with three or four or more!
PFT-V2 Pre-Order Link: http://tinyurl.com/k6zmzjp The Woven Celtic Cross calls to a time long ago when the beliefs of the Celts fused with those of Christians. Popular lore is that Saint Patrick combined the symbol of Christianity with the sun cross, a sacred symbol and solar motif associated with Celtic mythology. Whatever its true origin, the symbol remains a powerful one. With a significance that has spread to many, well beyond its origins, and to all parts of the world.

It's a base technique for a new family of ties incorporating cross warps and zipper sinnets. Capable of being pinky-finger wide (as shown) or wider (by adding more cross-wrapped cords, coupled with rows of zipper sinnets), the tying technique makes great leashes, bracelets, handles, and straps!
PFT-V2 Book Link: http://tinyurl.com/k6zmzjp The Icelandic Dream Bar is the three cord (integrated) variant of a new tying technique that I'm currently working out all the options for. In short, it (the tying technique) will change a lot of what's going on in the Fusion Knotting community today. So you know, this is the base technique, relatively easy to apply. Still, its iterations are varied in form and appearance, making this, the Icelandic Dream Bar, (essentially) a hint toward four to five more ties soon to come. All that said, unless others figure out the Dream Bar iterations first…I will likely hold on to them for the next paperback book (PFT-V3). p.s. If you can, visit Iceland. It's an inspiring country, the people are kind, and treat you like family; and…if you're lucky…you'll be able to bake bread in the ground.

A technique that demonstrates a relatively simple way to incorporate a Celtic, Chinese, or any other knot that ends with it's running ends parallel to one another, into a bracelet, choker, or chain.
