Simple laced paracord bracelet- another example

In this short tutorial I show how to tie a laced paracord bracelet, the simple way.

As you may know I really like to decorate bracelets using lacing and stitching techniques.

I have shown a few examples of such techniques already in the paracord bracelet instructions section.

I find that you can take a basic bracelet and make it stand out by adding a nice pattern using smaller cord.

So in this tutorial I demonstrate one such technique. It works especially well on bracelets made with the “diamonds” pattern (I used the “silver diamonds” and “neon green diamonds” cord colors on the images). I was inspired to try this using a few examples posted by paracord craftsmen. Sadly I can not remember who it was who first experimented with this design.

So, let’s do some lacing!

Supplies

To make such a bracelet you will first need to tie a base bracelet. In this tutorial I used the cobra knot paracord bracelet. You can also use the Mad Max bracelet, which is a simple modification to the basic cobra bracelet.

You will also need a lacing needle to do your lacing with. You can make your own fairly cheaply.

Finally you will need your lacing cord. For this purpose we usually use a smaller diameter cord, the most commonly used ones are:

You will also need some scissors and lighter, as with most paracord projects.

Start by preparing your cobra knot bracelet.
