About the bracelet

A bit more information before we start making one

Now you know the name of the bracelet and had an up close look at it, you can decide weather to make one or k(not). 

The bracelet will be made out of paracord 550 (found on Amazon). You will also need a lighter, a 

pair of scissors and a lighter to melt the paracord ends. I recommend getting a bracelet buckle to help you get your bracelet on and off.

 

As you can see below, both bracelet ends are functional and are the inverse of the other side.

A few tips

A bit of help before you start the project

When making a paracord bracelet, you need to keep you knots consistent. This means you tighten them with equal strength. With these bracelet, I recommend you tighten the knots very firmly. Do not be afraid if it looks a bit weird when you start, it will all get into shape after a few more knots. If you would like to try any other designs, try my how to make a paracord bracelet page on Paracord central.

 

If anything seems off when making the bracelet, you can adjust the cords as you go.

Before you start and when you are finished, remember to melt the ends of the paracord. This will make it much easier for you to work with the cords.

Be careful not to injure yourself when using fire. Do not expose paracord to fire for very long, since it will darken because of the heat.
