This style bracelet is not my own design. This design was originally created by Mathias Agnello along with many others. Thank you Trelligan for that information.

This Dragon Claw Bracelet was made for my son. With patience, it is fairly easy to make. Just take your time, and breath.

Step 1: Materials

I used 2 colors for this bracelet. I don't cut my paracord to size. I use the whole cord then cut off what's not needed at the end. This saves me more cord for later use and less scraps.

Jig(if you have one, it's much easier), scissors, lighter, crochet needle(I don't have a fid yet), 3/8 buckle, sowing needle, and thread(ideally same color as your cord).
<p>This is an excellent demonstration of how to write an instructable. Clear pictures illustrating every point, clear text explaining not only what but why.</p><p> You have a follower.</p>
<p>Thank you! This was my first one!</p>
I think I will make one of these out of copper wire and use my foundry skilz to make a dragon emblem to put on it :)<br>Thanks for the knot!
<p>Made mine with OD green and desert camo, I added a couple a skulls for fun too.</p>
Looks nice! I use skulls on various different bracelets as well. Always a nice touch!
how much rope does this take<br>
<p>A general rule for making paranoid bracelets is for every inch of the wrist size you will need 1 foot of paracord.</p>
thanks for the instuctable. very easy to follow.
You're welcome!
ok very good

Thank you for the info. I found a lot of conflicting info when I originally looked. Thank you for the link as well!
This is the one that I finally got around to making. Thanks for the instructions. (:
Dude, I've been trying to make one of these for the longest. Great work and precise instructions. Can't wait to get started on mine. Maybe I'll put a nail on a board put measurements like you, and go to town. Peace brother!!!!
<p>For people's reference:</p><p>Made a 8.75&quot; bracelet this way, used 14 ft of cord and had just barely a foot left. Leave the strand that doesn't cross the 2 runner cores or the border strand as he called it, about 8&quot; longer as it will shorten quicker!</p>
<p>Great instructions. I like it. I'm going to make one with some black and camouflage cord I have.</p><p>I don't have a jig, but would be interested in making one. Is there an instructable for that as well? (either yours or someone else's is fine.)</p>
<p>I haven't had time to do an instructable for a jig yet. You might be better off doing a search on it. I had kept a drawer from a broken dresser that I was throwing out and used the back wall piece to make mine.</p>
<p>Thank you! Its a crochet needle I long term barrowed from my girlfriend!</p>
<p>Technically, it's a knitting needle and a crochet hook. Crochet needle is a little confusing terminology.</p><p>Either way, it does what it is supposed to do. You mentioned fid twice, what is that?</p>
<p>Yup, it works out good for me! My terminology with knitting or sewing stuff is way off!</p><p>A fid is like a needle but meant for paracord. The paracord kind of screws into the base of the fid(the hollowed base has threads inside of it), and you use it to help with the tight spots.</p>
<p>FREAKING LOVE IT. and totally stealing moms crocheting hook... XD</p>
<p>Awesome! Now, how about an instructable for the jig? Looks pretty cool, as well!</p>
The jig wasn't too hard to make. I'll try to post an instructable on it when some time frees up.
<p>I'll add my vote for the Jig Instructable too - would make life sooooo much easier.</p><p>Nice instructable, thanks</p>
<p>very nice! :)</p>
<p>Thanks! That was number 2 of 4 Dragon Claw Bracelets lol</p>
