My girlfriend recently finished sewing a bag for me, but it doesn’t have a strap yet!
At first I tried making Slatts Rescue Belt by following this instructable on how to make a paracord rescue belt, but I didn’t turn out the way I was hoping at all…
Instead I figured I would try knitting the strap. I’ve never tried knitting paracord before, but the strap that I end up with would just as well as the other method since I end up with a flat strap that I can unravel quickly.
If you want to learn how to knit check out this video:

or this book: Knit: Step by Step It has lots of patterns and is pretty good if you like learning from books.
The pattern I’m using is one row knit, one row purl and it’s 6 rows wide.
