Paracord Adventures - Bracelets

 A good and functional item, the paracord bracelet aka survival bracelet, not a survival kit in itself but a good addition to a survival kit. By always wearing some type of bracelet you will have any where from 5 - 25 feet of spare cordage on you depending on the bracelet type.

So far I have made 26 different bracelet styles, these are all just practice ones and just for fun. Now though, I am kind of obsessed to try and see how many different types I can actually make.

All can be made through mainly YouTube video instructions. I have adapted almost all to use a buckle. I will be using the name that was on the video where I got the instructions from (so you can find it easier if you so desire), the names may or may not be correct. If I can remember who created the video I will add that as well.

Starting at top left to right:
  1. Cobra Stitch/Solomon Bar
  2. Piranha/Shark Jaw Bone (Tying It All Together - TIAT)
  3. "In and Out" type weave (Instructables)
