Paracord Prayer Beads are a quick and (relatively) easy
way to achieve a line of colored knots along a length of
cord.



Fundamentally a row of alternating blood knots, the
resulting strand of knots makes for a great necklace, a
bracelet, or (as the tie's name implies) a line of prayer
beads.

 :D  Loved this design JD and can't wait to have a go at tying them!!

Congratulations on getting to your 100th YouTube video - here's to the next 100!! ;D

I'm going to have a craft stall in November and would love to promote your new book! 

What would be good is to have a simple project e.g. making a keyring or zipper sinnet bracelet (for people to take away with them and have a go at) and details on how they can buy your book.  I am really hoping you will be able to send it over to the UK as I am really looking forward to getting my copy!  Will you be doing a download version too?

Thanks once again for what you do - really love your projects!

Thanks... (smile) I can't believe I've been able to keep up
the pace (a video a week for a little under two years). Still,
somehow, something always comes to mind.

As for the book, I'll let you know as soon as its available.

It's kool to see someone else tying this, and the idea of prayer beads, awesome.
I've tied a few of these bracelets in the past but just with a single strand, single colour and make them adjustable. I call it, "Walkin The Line", because if not mistaken, the knot is a, single strand, single turn Matthew Walker Knot. It can be mixed up a little by tying the single turn, two turn, three turn and so on, in the bracelet, necklace or whatever your making.
I like the idea of the two strands and therefore two colour design.
Nice work JD, as usual :)
