A fun bracelet to make!
The zigzag paracord bracelet is something I have only rarely seen made. I found a video from showing it off on Youtube, but I had to figure out how to make one myself. It is a really fun, beautiful bracelet that has a number of cool features. It is quite bulky and really stands out among generic paracord bracelets.

I also very much enjoy the side view of this bracelet design:
How to make a zigzag paracord bracelet
The bracelet is made by lacing a ladder rack bracelet. The process is fairly straightforward. You lace it by first inserting the cord every two rows on the sides, then using the same cord to go through the rows you already laced on the sides. I finished the bracelet by tucking in the cords, which is not needed, I just prefer it that way.
