Here is a very simple bracelet you can tie. It does not require any weaving, just a double fisherman's knot. It also contains about 5 feet of cord, but you could probably use more.

Step 1: The Double Fisherman's Knot

Also known as the grapevine or Double Englishman's knot, the double fisherman's knot is normally used to tie 2 pieces of rope together, usually in climbing to secure lines together, or as a backup knot that makes sure you don't fall off the rock wall. (Not a good thing!)

Made this for my husband who wanted it tight. so I wrapped it around his wrist and tied it on there. he loves it.
This is awesome, its easy and looks good too!!!
http://adf.ly/358bs woll smoth anyone?<br>
im pretty sur i have that same knife. does it say anthing on the blade?
It does not say anything on the knife whatsoever. Mine is proably the fake one
this is mine.
oh. well mine says &quot;made in vietnam&quot; or sumthing. i got mine from my grandfather.. its not that good of a working knife but its all i have that was his..
Mine is imposible to sharpen, I even had my uncle give it a try and its still dull.
I have a similar knife, but it was made from a metal file. I ordered it from a magazine years ago. Great steel. This one was made in Pakistan. Very high carbon. The colorful grip design gives it away.
I got it for 7 dollars 5 years ago. It almost went through airport security one time; i discovered it at the last second when taking out my camera. Lucky i was able to mail it home at a booth nearby. (It cost more than the knife in dollars, but in sentimental value it was priceless)
ok, I have just finished making one of these, and I have run into an issue.. I had a hard time getting in over my hand and onto my wrist because it is so tight, but it is still very loose on my wrist, and of course I can't seem to make it much smaller without having uneven strands, and thus making it look all lumpy, and not as pretty as yours.. any idea what I have done wrong? I know its vague, but it's a start<br>
The paracord might be a little short. Also, did you make sure to tie it at the fattest part of your hand?
that is so rad man!
Nice little instructable and great bracelet. My kids love to make these becuase they're so easy and quick to make. Nicely shown, thanks for sharing :-)
&nbsp;do the knots come out after a while of wearing it?
<p>the knots don't come untied as much as they actually get tighter. if you talk it off to take a shower, you probably need to retie it every couple weeks. its simple though, i have done it in the dark with one hand.</p>
This is great. Simple to tie, simple to untie, easy to measure, can be tied on the run. Great if you want to do this in a hurry while out camping etc. without being too fancy. I will actually use this.<br /> My vote is in.<br /> By the way, have you seen a website called Animated Knots by Grog?
No i have not seen Animated Knots. Is it animated GIF?<br />
Gastrointestinal Failure? Not sure.<br /> Graphics Interchange Format? I think so.
hahahaha yeah the second one.
