Default Paracord steering wheel cover

Somebody help me, I've become addicted. There's nothing fancy about this, I tried it in all black and decided to add the camo in the middle for effect. The ends were stripped to lay flat, and I used drops of crazy glue to keep the knots from coming loose- I hope.

It's wrapped over a thick leather steering wheel cover, so it's pretty thick which I wanted.

About a $5 and an hour project.

I did that in my F-150 awhile back and it looks great and people tell me all the time how much they like. It is a great cheap and easy fix!

That's a great idea.. roughly how much cordage did you use?

Around 50' black, around 5 feet camo.

I started on the left and ended on the right. That's why the cord is slanted to the right. I like it. If you want the cord at 90 degrees to the wheel at the top, start in the middle and work to the sides, and it would be slanted on the ends.

Default Paracord steering wheel cover

With wooden spokes?
There's a whole other type of Navy knot work done with cotton cord, and shellac costed as I understand it.

I need to do this again. My 1500 was wrecked in 2015, I moved the wheel cover to my 2500.

I just did my ranger steering wheel last week. I figured 50' would do it. Wrong. Closer to 80 or 90
