Making a two color paracord fishtail bracelet.

Step 1:

The things you will need
1. Paracord your choice on colors
2. Lighter or something to burn the ends. Torch lighter is the best
3. Cutting devise.
4. Hemostat. 
5. Tape measure
I live in the Bay Area so black and orange Giants baby.
<p>Super easy and fun!</p>
Can you explain the weave a little more in detail?
I love it!!!
<p>I like the design and the idea of it, but you didn't go over when the two strand's are on the same side. It gets confusing. </p>
<p>just made mine and I changed it slightly I think it turned out better than expected! </p>
<p>I used just over 6 ft. of Black, and 6 ft. of OD Green, and this turned out really well. About 7 inches long. I could have woven it a little tighter, but it works just fine for the first time I am trying this one. Thanks for the great tutorial.</p>
7 feet of paracord is plenty for this bracelet.
Just FYI: when I did it, I used 10 ft for each length, and was left with about 4 feet left of EACH color, so be careful.
awesome! i've been looking for cool alternative to the cobra. <br>Question: what size hemostat do you you use? <br> <br>Go Giants!!!
Great design!! Would be great to see this in video format :)
that's preety cool
How much para-chord do you need for this, please be more specific bro!
Like the post said I used two lengths at 12 feet each to have plenty left over. The second one I made I used 6 feet of each cord and made a bracelet that is 8.5 inch with a foot left over.
Good post - well done :) <br> <br> <br>I do have a question, if you don't mind? <br> <br>The yellow gauge-like piece on your jig ... could you tell me where you got it? <br> <br>I've been looking for an angle divisor/ angle divider (metal) and can't find it where I live. Perhaps this could be another option for me :)
It is about the same thing as a angle divider only plastic. I found it at home depot just by chance in the tool section by the levels. Be warned it does slip a little bit and you need to make sure its holding when you are doing the weave. Hope that helps.
http://www.instructables.com/id/Paracord-Bracelet-FixtureJig/ . Sorry I dont have any photos of the jig I used. The link above is what I used to make it. I went a little overboard on it and made it two sided to accept small shackles and steel rings for dog collars. Keep in mind if you use the one in the link the angle divider is very hard to find and may have to be ordered on amazon or another site.
Great post! Do you have any photos of your jig? It looks super-useful. Thanks!
WOW way cool !!! think I will make a belt,,, if I can find enough paracord ,, stupid potato chips lol ( GO ROCKIES -couldn't resist lol ) {;~)&gt;=
Very cool. I will try this today or tomorrow! <br>
Very nice looking, and great job!<br> <br> I was going to ask you to post pictures (or an instructable) for the jig. In searching the site, I found one which appears to be what you might have used (?)- are these pretty much the same, and are you pleased with this one? By Macgyver9, <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Paracord-Bracelet-FixtureJig/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/Paracord-Bracelet-FixtureJig/</a> .<br> <br> I only do a little with paracord, and haven't in nearly a year. But I'm having surgery next week, and thought this would be a good activity to pass the time; and the jig I made/used previously wasn't exactly the cat's pajamas.<br> <br> Thanks!
I like the black/red and knot style. Reminds me of a coral or a milk snake (excluding yellow or white respectively).
