    Hello everyone, I've recently started making mainly lanyards, pull tabs and some bracelets out of paracord. One thing I haven't quite gotten the hang of is keeping my knots and weaves exactly inline or the same spacing so everything looks crisp. I know that the key is too keep the tension constant throughout the weaving process but I was wondering if anyone has any tip/tricks or tool suggestions to help me out? I already have a jig so that has helped my bracelet production. Thanks for the time!

    a jig is a great way to be more consistent along with using quality cord. I try to use the same manufacturer for all my cord. But muscle memory is the best thing. in other words, tie alot. :)

    What they said!!

    OK, I'm a very rank amateur when it comes to paracord, but I can't imagine it without my paracord jig. It's worth every penny I paid for it.

    Good Luck!!
