Intro: Easy Turks Head Slip on Bracelet

This Instructable will teach you how to make a turks head bracelet out of Paracord. The turks head knot is rather complicated at first, but once you get used to it, it gets rather straightforward.

Step 1: Supplies

All you need for this bracelet is a Paracord stitching needle, a lighter, 3.5 feet of Paracord, a cup that you can barely fit your hand in (if your hand has room the bracelet will be too big), and scotch tape.

Step 2: Turks Head

Tape your standing end (the end of the Paracord that you don't use) to the cup. Wrap your running end around and to the left of the standing end. Now pull it up in between the left and right strands. Then push your running end under the right and over the left strands. Pull the left strand over the right, making a loop. Now take your running end under the left side of the loop and over the right. Make a loop again, right over left. Take your running end under the right side of the loop and over the left. Repeat. Do this until you come back to your standing end.

Step 3: Finishing

Cut off your ends to a couple inches. Now push your standing end through to the right so that it is next to the running end. Now burn them together. This will seal and secure your bracelet. Now slide it off the cup and onto your wrist!

Step 4: Done!

You are done! Show off your turks head bracelet to all your friends!

    Nice! I like how it's a more open weave than some of the other bracelets I've seen.
