Made in Paracord: 25 Great Jewelry, Accessories, and Home Project to Knot by Caitlin Wynne, published by St. Martin’s Griffin, contains 25 amazing designs created out of paracord! Each design is easy to make and made with materials that are easy to work with. The only special skill required is knowing how to make a knot! There are items that you can create for yourself and for your home. Made in Paracord begins with a brief biography about the author Caitlin and moves on to describe paracord and the art of macrame. It then moves on to a section that discusses tools, different types of knots, and how to choose colors and different cord finishes. We then move on to all of the projects.
