Picture of Adjustable Paracord Bracelet

This is an adjustable paracord bracelet that you slip on over your hand and then tighten up. My son learned how to tie solomon knot bracelets some time ago using side buckle clips. But when a clip shortage hit he had to adapt. This is what he came up with. He uses the loop created from an alpine butterfly as the first loop and continues with a standard paracord bracelet.  When finished you can slide the alpine loop to size, flip the whole thing inside out and voila.  So without further ado, here is Brian's first instructable...

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

For this project you will need 5-8 feet of para cord(1), a sharp pair of scissors, and a lighter(2).

Step 2: The Measurements

Picture of The Measurements

The length of the para cord should be approximately 2 outstretched arm lengths. To make sure the rope doesn't fray while making the solomon knot you should fuse (see step 5) the cut ends or you can tie a figure 8 stopper knot.

Step 3: Starting the Bracelet

There are many ways to start a para cord bracelet, but the one I will be telling you about is slightly adjustable. Find the middle of the para cord and tie an alpine butterfly knot. If you don't know how to tie the alpine butterfly knot, this will help you: http://www.instructables.com/id/Butterfly-Knot-Made-Simple/ (The finished loop should be 1-3 inches in diameter). Loop the para cord in the finished loop of the alpine butterfly so it fits you all the way around the largest part of you hand (you should make it a bit larger so you can put it on once you've finished it) hold that length where it is.
