Introduction: In-and-out Knot and Loop Bracelet

This tutorial will show you how to make an "in-and-out" style paracord bracelet. Until I figure this out this is not really the start...go to step 1 for the start to show you how the inner part is made.

I dont get how i am supposed to follow this with only pictures. It says there is a step one but i cant seem to find it. :C

author

I had trouble with this too, I am new to instructables - but if you click the picture, and then click it again when it comes up isolated, it takes you to an individual step. Would be nice to see them all on the same page, and you probably can, but I haven't figured it out.

Great instructable, like having the knot and loop closure rather than the plastic clip kind. My finger strength is not what it used to be. Your pics are great.
Thanks!

Love this bracelet-thanks! It took me a while to get the lanyard knot (also called a boatswain's whistle knot) down but found the step-by-step guide found at: http://www.ropeworks.biz/reader/boatswai.pdf to be very helpful.

Cheers!

Thank you for the link. You saved me time finding it!

that is good...I have a youtube instruct on a part 2 video of making a chain sinnet bracelet if you just look for ghosthonda on there as well.

That was a great idea using a soldering iron to melt the end! I usually use a lighter and try to press it down and hope it sticks. The iron melts the end and the part that you want it to stick to.

Very good idea!!!

can i use two colors?

author
darman12 (author)lilrou152012-01-21

Yes...just take two colors and do half the length for each one. Then take each cord and melt one end of each cord to the other. It should look like the pic below when done. Sorry if this is hard to follow...can't explain it too well.

took a pic with my iphone so will see if I can add it here

Hello!

How do you combine the colors ? Do you melt two different colors like you do when doing a dual tone cobra bracelet ?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards.

Just made a bracelet to try it and did the knot and loop style with the core part(knot and loop strand) as black; then I started at the loop end with a cobra stitch and then started doing what the pic shows above. when I got to the knot end I did one more cobra stitch and melted the ends after cutting close.

author
kcardwel (author)lilrou152011-02-11

yes, you can...actually three if you want...one for the core where the loop and knot one is and then two more for the weave...you would do every other weave with the second color. looks really nice too. have a pic of it but can't post is quite yet since my other computer is down right now.

I would like to use a buckle. Any thoughts or suggestions? BTW, thanks for this instructable.... I'm getting bored doing the cobra.

author
kcardwel (author)sdom7262011-12-12

yes; loop it through as many times as it will go on male or female part of the buckle having the lengths of the strands such that one is long enough to go back to the other part of the buckle and do a cobra weave there. take the long end and start the in and out weave. or you can use two separate pieces; one the shorter one to loop around the one part of the buckle and go back to the other end for the desired length and tie of with a couple of cobra weaves and melt off. then take the other strand and do your in and out weave. I usually do it the second way...to keep it stretched out I take a smaller piece of cord and go through the one end of the buckle and tie it to a post or something. then I do the same thing with the other end....I usually use a taughtline hitch for that second end in keeping it tight...I can readjust it with the hitch if I want to loosen it or tighten more.

sdom726 (author)sdom7262011-12-12

I think I have it figured out. I just need to treat it like the cobra on a buckle. The trick will be in the beginning and maintaining the tension. I hope to post a picture by tonight....

samuel.jackson2012 (author)2011-07-27

I'm a little bit confused about measuring out lengths... Could you please explain? Thanks so much!

author

You need two cords. One is the core part which should be around 3' to 3'6"
the other is the longer one and should be around 9'

triumphman (author)2011-06-16

Where are the intructions? Isn't that is what is an instructable? Very nice smoothe design though, clean and sassy. I would like to try one if I could figure out all that mountain climbing gear and spaghettie mess!

author
kcardwel (author)triumphman2011-06-20

it is meant to be a pictoral instruction for the most part

author
Tommi Potx (author)2011-05-29

DavisT1964, take a minute and look at the pics, then lay out your cord identically, and all will be well. There is much joy in paracord land.

Now I gotta make one!!!

moriah.jeeps (author)2011-02-24

I am having big time trouble with the knot! I am stuck after step 5. Do you havea video?

author
kcardwel (author)moriah.jeeps2011-02-24

not sure where exactly you are at but take a look at this video since it instructs on how to make the same knot for another bracelet......

might be easier to see it...I go real slow on it.

author
moriah.jeeps (author)kcardwel2011-02-24

Thanks. Ill try that out.

author
lookaquarter (author)2011-02-02

Thanks! BTW what is the knot called?

author
kcardwel (author)lookaquarter2011-02-02

you know I have looked in tiat's book and videos and other places and haven't found a name for it. will keep looking.

author
kcardwel (author)2011-01-31

click the small slide show pics and the slide show will stop and you can view them individually at your own pace.

How much paracord do u use to make a bracelet for 7.5 inch wrist?

author
kcardwel (author)newman529.jn2011-01-28

you need the inner core for the loop and knot which would only take 3' tops and for the weaving tops 10'. for a 7 1/2" wrist the whole thing from tip of knot to tip of loop would be about 9"

Great instructable. Just what I was looking for. Doing a show in Dec. Make and sell things to benefit an Equine rescue. These are going to be great!!! Love things that are different and can make up easily.
Thanks so much

DavisT1964 (author)jagfan2010-10-16

I have to be nice. This instructable for the lanyard knot portion of this is ridiculous. Has anyone actually tried it. You cant tie a knot with all of the looseness this tries to show. Sorry fact.

author
tori1012 (author)2010-08-22

whats the thickness of the paracord u used? also, would i be able to find it on amazon.com?

author
kcardwel (author)tori10122010-08-22

it is the regular 550 cord which I got at supplycaptain.com . have seen it on ebay but haven't looked on amazon.

author
tori1012 (author)kcardwel2010-08-22

ohh. thank you :)

author
mysss (author)tori10122010-09-02

CheaperThanDirt has the cheapest price per foot I've seen (for 300 foot spools--the other lengths they sell are pretty standard in price I think) but they only have Olive Drab and Black. SupplyCaptain has a good variety of colors, and you can get pretty much anything on Amazon....

author
kcardwel (author)2010-08-18

it means 10 feet and 2 feet...will try to edit it...somehow it doesn't understand the foot mark I guess.

joey99 (author)2010-05-09

author
byrddawg (author)2010-05-05

I've been looking for how this type was made and I found it!! Thanks, now I need to give it a try!
