If you want to craft with scraps of paracord, chances are, you’re going to need to know how to stitch two sections of paracord together. There are multiple ways to stitch paracord together; however, this article will focus on how to stitch two sections of paracord together using the Manny Method.
To start, you will need two paracord fids and two sections of paracord that we will designate paracord one and paracord two. To begin you want to attach a fid onto one end on each of the sections of paracord. Next, you are going to need to hollow out about one inch of the ends without the fids. To do this you will need to pull out the white strands on the inside of the paracord about an inch and cut them off, this will allow the insides to suck in leaving a hollow end. Take the end of your paracord fid and put it into the now hollowed out end. Using a lighter, very slightly melt the edges to prevent fraying and remove the fid. Do this on both ends of paracord. You will end up with two pieces of paracord with a fid on one end and a hollowed end on the other.
Next, to stitch the paracord together, take the fid on paracord 1 and to the end of paracord two, poke the tip of the fid into the paracord about a quarter inch down from the end. You will be poking the fid up towards hole in the end. Pull the fid through the hole at the end until there are a few inches of the paracord through the hole. Do the same with the fid on paracord two and the hollow end on paracord one. You should now have two interlocked sections. To complete the stitch, pull the paracord fids into opposite directions until the interlocked sections come together.
That’s it! You have just learned how to stitch two sections of paracord together.
Happy paracord stitching!
