Carry 50 feet of cord on your hat
Here's another way to carry 50 feet of cord around with you. I used a three peg knitting spool to loosely knit 50 feet of this 1/16 inch diameter utility cord to go around my boonie hat.
After knitting the cord, I worked it around the webbing on the hat, starting at the back center, and finished off the last foot of cord, with the single start and end strands, using the snake knot.
I purchased the cord last year at an Army/Navy store and haven't seen it anywhere since. It's 1/16" polypropylene utility cord made by Atwood Rope Mfg. You'll have to google it and see if you can find a source for it, or use Type I paracord, or other 1/16" sized cord to get 50 feet of it around a boonie hat like I've done here. Of course this is a 7 3/4 sized hat to fit my large noggin, but I believe it'd still work on a smaller hat.
