In this tutorial I go over the chain sinnet paracord bracelet.
The chain sinnet technique has been the inspiration for many paracord bracelets. It is a technique often used to shorten rope, but it also has many applications, especially in survival gear. It can be used to make quick deploy bracelets such as the one I will demonstrate.
If you have been following the site for a while, you may remember the tutorial on the quick deploy solomon bracelet, which uses the same technique. The difference between that tutorial and this one is that this bracelet has been designed for survival purposes. As such, it is made out of a singe piece of cord, which is more appropriate for a survival use. It is also made using a bracelet buckle, which is more functional than the ball and loop technique. This will ensure that you will wear your bracelet more often, which may mean you will have it when you need it.
All in all, this is a fun, easy and very useful technique to know and it can be applied to many projects.
The tutorial on the chain sinnet paracord bracelet
The bracelet is made by first attaching the cord to the buckle using a lark’s head knot. We take the left end, form a bight and pass it under the core.
After that we do a series of bights:
- We take the right end, form a bight and pass it through the first, left bight and over the core.
- We take the left end, form a bight and pass it through the right bight and under the core.
Once you done a few of these you will see the pattern that much resembles the standard cobra knot. Finish making the bracelet and remove the slack to make it look better. You may simply melt the ends or tie the bracelet off.
