In this tutorial we take a look at the Pisces paracord bracelet.
Like many bracelet designs I feature lately, this one is the product of Pavel Makurin, better known as CETUS.
The bracelet is a fairly easy one and does not eat up a whole lot of cord. The one featured in this tutorial is done using a buckle as the closing mechanism.
Let’s move on and take a look at the few supplies needed for this project.
- paracord 550. A single strand, 10 feet long for a 6 inch weave.
- a 5/8 inch bracelet buckle.
- a bracelet jig is optional and easy to make.
- scissors and lighter.
Now, on to the weaving process.
Tying the Pisces paracord bracelet
Before we can begin weaving, we need to do our initial setup. This bracelet uses the double core bracelet setup. Go ahead and prepare it, we will start from there.
The initial starting position- 2 working ends and a 4 stranded core.
Take the left end and pass it in the middle of the core, forming a bight.
Pass the left end through the bight, creating a hitch.
The right end passes bottom up in between the middle strands and over the left end.
Pass just above the left end.
Then pass beside the left end, crossing the two ends at the top.
Just to make it 100% clear, let’s repeat the weaving process once more.
Take the left end, pass it through the middle of the core, forming a bight.
Travel through the opening, creating a hitch.
The right end travels bottom up through the middle and over the left end.
Travel just above the left end.
Pass beside the left end, crossing the two ends at the top.
Weave until you reach the other buckle end, filling out the bracelet.
Turn the bracelet around. We are going to tuck the two ends under a couple of loops.
The right end passes under the left loop.
The left end passes under the right loop.
Tighten up, trim the ends and melt them. Bracelet done!
