The best paracord bracelet around

Step 1: The Say

Simple yet elegant this paracord bracelet is one of a kind invented by me you will love it

Step 2: Supplies

All you need: 2 pieces of paracord from tip of hand to nose 1 piece of paracord the circumference of your wrist doubled Then some more to tie a knot plus another two or three inches Lighter Scissors Measuring tape Plyers

Step 3: The Base

Take the wrist measured paracord fold in half and tie end

Step 4: The Start

Take one of the two other pieces of paracord and feed it through the top as so

Step 5: To the Half Point Check Mark

Weave it in and out like shown in the picture make sure to do it tight the loose picture is to show how it is woven do this to the half way point

Step 6: The Splice

Once at the middle of the paracord base you need to take the end of the string and cut it short then pull the middle of the paracord out take the second and last piece of paracord and pull the inside out a little as well put them together and melt with lighter and use plyers to make a smooth transition

Step 7: To the End

Keep weaving with the second color and leave a loop at the end put the paracord through the last weave cut short and melt and smooth to inside of bracelet

Step 8: The Knot

The string hanging off the knot needs to be set so cut it short then burn the end and use plyers to make it flat also the string hanging from the under the knot is shortened melted and smoothed to the inside of the bracelet

Step 9: How to Put On

Put around wrist and put the knot through the loop and have that part on the under part of your wrist and that's it

Step 10: Rock It

It is a easy wear and stays on as good as a buckle without the hard plastic feel

Thank you for making this! It would be cool to know how to do with a clip though, too. TFTI! (Thanks for the Instructable, taken from TFTC in geocaching)

If you leave a little extra length on th knot end you can loop the pieces through a buckle and burn them and on the other end with the loop you can cut it into two strands to loop it through the other part of a buckle you could do the same with a clasp.

Step # 6 is unclear as to what 'ends' you are referring to and why are you fusing these 'ends' together?

Just listen to the beginning when it tells you the lengths of
Paracord you need their will be a left over piece after the first few steps it will be a different color that is the one you splice when you get
Half way through with the first color

Yes it is very easy to modify just loop it on the clip and burn the end and tie and burn on the end

Its also known as the fishtail or cross weave. Been around a long time like most knots have. Check out Ashley's Book of Knots...very old but cool book.

It's just not as common as some of the other ones. But no you didn't invent it.
