A paracord pet leash is a great project for those of us with pets…we have 2 dogs so we keep multiple leashes around. We also have many friends with dogs, and we like to give our leashes out to friends and the local animal shelters. This pattern is for a 6 foot dog leash, you can shorten or lengthen as necessary.
You need 40 feet of paracord of each color for 80 feet total, scissors, a lighter, a tape measure, and I purchased a using a swivel bolt snap. I purchased mine at tractor supply for $2, but I have seen them at lowes, home depot, pretty much any hardware store.
Here is a link to the one at tractor supply.
So First Step, you will hook the paracord onto the swivel bolt..the inside strands should be 6 feet if you want a 6 foot leash..you can shorten or lengthen as necessary. My outer 2 strands of cord are 34 feet and I wrapped them into bundles and fastened it with a rubber band to help hold it together while weaving.
To build the body of the leash, we will do a cobra stitch. Basically, 1 strand makes a P shape (in the pic below that is the green and red one), the other strand (red)goes on top of the 1st strand, then behind the 2 middle strands and and through the loop of the P and then you pull tight.
That is the pattern…so you just continue for 6 feet.
Now we will make the handle.
I loop back about 15 or so inches of the cobra weaved leash and we will do MORE cobra weave, but this time we are weaving over 2 already weaved pieces making it a KING COBRA. Sounds cool eh??
All this does is make the loop in the handle..so continue the KING COBRA weave until you are out of paracord (I think I got about 10 stitches before I ran out of paracord, and that is plenty to hold it.)
Then you trim the ends of the paracord, singe them with the lighter and press them into your work to finish it off.
Now to take my dogs out for a walk!
