    Here is some half hitching around a carabiner using # 24 cotton twine - the technique works very well with paracord

    Tie half hitch around ring and tag end. Pull tight.

    Continue half hitching until desired length. Tie at least 4 loose half hitches reeve Working End through these hitches.

    Starting with loop in top center (second loose loop). One at a time. Tighten the remaining loops (four in all)

    Half hitching makes a nice handle cover. Shown here in cotton cord but paracord works very well
