Here is a new paracord bracelet I made over the weekend. I was playing around with a lanyard knot and found that if I just tied the first half of it, I could flatten it out. Then I just repeated that pattern, alternating which end starts on top of each section to keep it from forming a spiral. Each course is about 1/2 inch in length.
I finished this by leaving a little space, then tieing a full lanyard knot. The loop at the beginning will hook around the knot to hold it on, so no buckles are needed.
This pattern does not use as much paracord and some of the others. For an 8 inch bracelet (with an inch or so at the beginning for the loop and end for the lanyard knot), this only uses 6-7 feet of paracord. This is also thinner than some of the others as it is only one the width of one strand of paracord.
