    Hello, I am new to this forum,and paracord. I thought it would be good projects for my grandchildren and now Papa is hooked.

    My question is about weaving a belt using the conquistador weave. I know this will take a lot of paracord and I am wondering if I can join shorter pieces together. Pulling 100 feet through each loop will take forever. I have made some bracelets using this weave and think it would make a great belt

    Any help would be appreciated

    Belt

    Hi Monomoy43:

    I am new to this too. I was recently asked to do a collar for an English bulldog. It measured 20". Like you, I dreaded the thought of pulling all that cord. So I made two 10" lengths and weaved them together. I am thinking you can do the same. Depending on the waist, it might work.
    Good Luck,
    Frank

    Hi Frank

    Thank you for your reply. I am going to do two color so I can weave It in like you add the new color. I was wondering if folks used the Manny connection or some other method. I just did not want to do an end to end, I think that it would stand out in the design depending where it showed in the weave.
