Let’s Begin.

Step 1: Ready Your Tool

Make a long loop that is the length that you want your wrap to be, then pinch the string into place with your thumb.

Step 3: Start Wrapping

Wrap the Paracord around the beginning of the loop so that it remains in place.

Step 4: Continue Wrapping the Tool Handle

Continue wrapping the Paracord tightly down the handle of your tool until the loop is almost covered.
