Aztec sun bar paracord bracelet

This time we tie the Aztec sun bar paracord bracelet!

The Aztec sun bar is a bracelet design that was popularized by J.D.Lenzen. The bracelet works great in many color combinations. Personally I like the white and green which makes for a nice daisy looking bracelet. A green and red gives it a rose like look. And the yellow and red gives it the sun look.

In any case though, the bracelet is designed using a series of cow hitches. Quite easy to do and it looks great! What else can you ask for?
