Picture of The (New) Sawtooth Paracord Bracelet Weave

*Update*  I know you guys really want a video but I have been busy so I will let anybody make a video for this weave.  But make sure you reference me as the knot... designer(?) because I will hopefully make a new instructable and this time I will make the strings different colors thus causing less confusion if they for some reason didn't get the video. And also please subscribe if you like my instructables because I will make the new instructable private to my subscribers for a few weeks, then I will release it to everyone.  Just subscribe.  Its easy.
  
   If you are willing to make the video, please message me or comment below so I know who is making it.  Then once it is done and submitted Youtube (I guess other video sites would be fine but more people use youtube) please send me a link to the new video so I can check if the weave is wrong or your video is just ridiculously awesome.

When I saw the snake weave, it was cool, but I did not like how it was round. Before I made a bracelet using the snake weave, I made one of the over under bracelets. I liked how flat the over under one was but I did not like how it only had one color. I also saw a version of the over under bracelet that used two colors. But I did not like the pattern. I thought to myself, there must be a different way to make that. I then thought of this, but I did not know that it would have a snake weave kind of look. But when I made more and more of the pattern, it started looking like two saw blades.

If you look closely the weave looks like this:

|_/_|
|_/_|
|_/_|
The two cords come together at an angle, and that gives it the sawblade look.
(Sorry for the fuzzy pictures, I don't have a good camera!)

Please rate and vote for the contest(s)!
I might even win a camera! Then I will have better pictures for my instructables!

Great job with measurements. As a guy who's done paracord bracelets and such for four years, this is still a very complicated knot and I give
You props for accurate measurements.

This weave has the potential to be very nice. However, the instructions are terrible. I used this video that another commenter had recommended and was able to make a great bracelet which I closed with a buckle instead of the knot.


Advice: 1) Tying both ends of this bracelet to something to keep the center cords stretched is NOT optional. This weave is pretty much impossible without it. 2) The weave stays very loose until you force it to tighten, which you will have to do several times throughout the process. Think of it like a monkey-fist: you are going to be feeding the cord through the pattern a few times to tighten it once you have done a few "stitches." 3) Watch the video for how to actually do this weave - the steps are 1 strand at a time, with the left (yellow) one coming under and around the standing strand - then the right (black) one coming up and over the standing strand, through the loop of the yellow, then back down under the standing strand.

Can u do it with the side release buckles?

Yes - take a look at my post above, just feed the looped end through one side of the buckle - then feed the bracelet through the loop. Attach the loose end of the bracelet to the other side of the buckle as you would normally, tucking the ends through and melting them together.

Awesome! I've got bored of cobra weaves (you do wham you've made 100's of variations) and this is a nice change. Have never seen it before but it's really cool!
Video please!!!

I really love these and think they are cool!! I am going to have my Scout's make these and sell them as a fundraiser! And we will for sure give you credit because you have earned it! But I do not see a subscribe button or vote or rate... and just to let you know any decent person SHOULD give you credit, cause where credit is earned it is due!! But you can't force them unless you have a copyright on the item. But thanks so much for the great idea, and GREAT JOB!!! You do awesome!

Where do you buy your paracord from?
building king (author)  Schmidty8503 years ago
Army surplus stores, or online. Just google paracord. But make sure it ships close to where you live because the shipping might cost more than the paracord.
I get mine on Amazon. Seller: Our School Spirit has a lot of dope colors and you can get 100 ft. for around $10. Check out rainbow if you look. It looks better in person but it's an awesome colored paracord

Can someone who has made this please make a video! this is the best paracord bracelet I have ever seen and would love to make one but these instructions are very hard to follow and I'm totally confused. No offense to building king but he has said he was going to make a video and has not done so. so again anyone who has made this and can make a video please do.

i love it, i thought your directions were very straight , managed to get it done in less than 30 min, and was only the second paracord bracelet i have ever made.
Great job!
i also used a big clip to hold the loose ends while i started the braid, it helped me greatly

Love the look of this, but it is impossible to follow. When do I pull the ends through? You go from step three to a half finished bracelet. Might be helpful if the center cord was a different color.
I definitely think this is too confusing and would like to see a video.
If you will number the strands it will help explain the weave. Basically in the middle you are making an X though one strand goes under on one side and then on the other side it goes over then you make the X and do the opposite if say the yellow went under then after the X is formed you would fold it back over the strand. I made my 1st one with a side release buckle and started the same way you do a survival bracelet. I hope this helps. I think I have seen some videos on Youtube over this bracelet that helped me to understand it. I hope this helps

It look similar to the snake knot that TIAT makes and he has a video showing how.
Just follow the link.

Not to be rude, but please read the description. I said that I saw the snake knot/weave but I didn't like how it was round so I made this one.

when are you making the video?
