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?
The supplies listed below are for a 6 inch weave.
As far as the items needed for this bracelet, I recommend the following:
With these items ready, let’s tie our bracelet!
We start off by setting up the core for our bracelet. I recommend using this technique.
The bottom part of the setup.
Top part of the setup.
Feed the other, main cord through the top.
Cross the two cords of the secondary cord over the middle.
Hitch the cords of the primary color over the two crossed cords.
Cross the two cords over the middle again.
Tie a cow hitch on the left. Start with a hitch.
Make another hitch to complete the cow hitch.
Do the same thing on the right side. A cow hitch.
The cow hitch complete on the right.
Hitch the middle again.
Continue the same way.
Bottom of the bracelet.
Tuck the ends at the bottom.
Cut the ends and melt them.
With that the bracelet is done!
