Wide Side Step Bracelet or Dog Collar

The wide side step is an original design by Joe Clegg.  We used this design to make our martingale dog collar, but it makes a fun wide bracelet as well.  Plan on using about 10-12 feet each of paracord in two colors for a bracelet.

Martingale Dog Collar

This martingale dog collar was made with the wide side step design, but can be made with any of your favorite weaves such as the cobra weave.  This style of collar works like an adjustable collar, great for a dog who can slip out of its collar.  You'll need about 15-20 feet of paracord, two D rings, and one O ring.

Fenrir Bracelet

Dog Tennis Ball Toy

Pull out an old tennis ball and 20 ft of paracord for this dog toy.  We used two pieces of paracord at 10 ft and used the four strand round braid completed with a crown knot for this toy.  You'll need a sharp knife to carefully cut two holes in the tennis ball to insert your braid through the ball.

Three Ring Multi Strand Bracelet

We used three split rings and the color to color 275 paracord for this fun colorful bracelet.  By taking the inner strands out of the cord we felt it laid a little better inside the rings.

This bracelet used about 5 ft in two colors, but plan on having a little extra to work with.  We finished it off with a 1/2 inch buckle.  This made a bracelet about 3/4 inch wide.  We also made another version with four strand core for a wider 1 inch bracelet.

For this bracelet, start with a four strand double cow's hitch with a twist!  You'll want a lacing needle to weave the strands in and out of your twisted cords.

Baseball or Stitched Solomon Bracelet

Gear Wheel Bracelet

Add one of our new viking rune beads to this round bracelet or leave it plain.  Either way looks great.  If using a bead, we recommend using 425 or 325 paracord.  This weave creates a nice stripe down the middle which is also great for making thin blue line bracelets.

Get out your lacing needle for this wide bracelet.  We used about 22 feet total for this 8 1/2 inch bracelet.

Titanium Spring

We used almost 20 feet of paracord for this bracelet.  You'll also need a lacing needle to wrap the titanium colored cord around the outside edges.

Cold Pockets

The spaces between the grey cords show small "pockets" of blue in this design.  You'll make a modified two strand double cow's hitch to create a closed four strand double cow's hitch for the core of this bracelet.

Cascade

This pattern leaves the middle two strands to show through the V shape down the middle of the bracelet.  You'll need a lacing needle to weave the second strand of blue through the outside edges.

Devil's Gate

Devil's Gate features an alternating X pattern down the center of the bracelet.

Olive Camo

This bracelet uses Lark's Head knots on the sides with the olive and camo cords crossing back and forth down the length of the bracelet.

Chained Endless Falls

We used Type 1 paracord for this bracelet, but any size paracord can be used.  We chose a small snap hook clasp and small D ring for the closure which can also be changed to a regular buckle if desired.

Jungle Princess

Dark Knight's Queen

This bracelet uses the lark's head knots on each side of the bracelet with a diamond cord wrapping between each knot and a navy cord filling the spaces in the center.

Sand Drift

Here is a wide bracelet with a unique design.  It will take a little time and patience, but you'll be happy with the results.

Spike Bracelet

These decorative spikes create a punk look to your bracelet.  We made this adjustable bracelet with micro cord weaving around each spike to secure it.

Smooth

This is an advanced weave requiring you to twist your "core" strands.  It may take some patience and some counting, but the end result is this unique, large V pattern.

Fishtail Chevron

Here is a slight variation on the regular fishtail design bracelet.  You can make this with 2 or more colors.  This also ends up being slightly wider than a fishtail bracelet at 3/4 inch wide.
