Picture of Oat Spike Paracord Bracelet
The oat spike paracord bracelet has a very nice looking weave.
It is not very difficult to make.
When you get the hang of making the bracelet, it becomes a very quick and easy job.
If you ever get stuck in the wilderness or there is a zombie apocalypse you can unravel this bracelet and then have 12' total of cord.

Step 1: Supplies

For this instructable you'll need:

I didn't know of any other knots than the Solomon Bar. Thanks!

I really like this one but my 6" of paracord only made 3" of bracelet.

Just finished this about a minute ago. Only took a few minutes. Looks amazing and nobody would suspect how simple it was. Plus, having no need for a buckle makes this really useful.

First time using paracord and first time trying anything like this.

Kinda cool.

about mid way through, i switched it up and started to do the pattern the other way so that the green was the primary colour instead of the blue.

Might be a better way to do it on the switch, but its come out pretty good.

For a bit fancier bracelet at this point you could end the oat spike pattern with a four strand diamond knot, then snip and burn the blue cords. Then make a two strand diamond knot instead of the overhand knot.
This is my new favorite weave. Love it! Good job. :)

Excellent instructions. I will actually try this, and I too like the buckle-less factor!

I like this. I was getting tired of the tried and true Solomon Bar Bracelet I have. This would make a good alternative.

I put the yellow through the top gap the one about the first illustrated picture and it came out different but looks just as cool. Thank you for feeding my imagination!!

Ya no problem.
Nice job

You get a tighter weave if you make it on a paracord jig looks more professional
