Intro: Herring Bone (Fish Tail) Paracord Bracelet
in this instructable i will show you how to make a herring bone or fish tail bracelet out of paracord or 550 cord.
You will need
Paracord, you can get 100' on Ebay for $10
buckles, Again about $2 for 5 on Ebay
scissors or just something to cut the cord with
a lighter or matches, melt the ends
First wrap the cord around your wrist then make about 8 times that length, cut and grab your buckle.
fold in half and pull through the buckle then its self. then pull the other ends through. This is when you want to adjust your loop size.
First take the end on the left and go under the right part of the loop then take the right and go under the left. Now take the end on the left and go around the left under the right and under the left. Take the other string and continue to the end of the bracelet.
At the end we will make half of a cobra knot to do this make one loop over the main bracelet, then take the other end and go around the first ones endgo under the bracelet and through the loop. Pull tight and cut leaving about half a centimeter hanging then melt the ends and press against some thing hard like your scissor blades. CAUTION molten nylon is extremely hot !
