For a long time now I have been crafting things out of paracord, mostly out of need. I hike and backpack a lot and during those 4 and 5 day outings it is likely that I’ll find a need for some extra cordage, which is where having my paracord bracelets comes in handy. I’ve used it to hang my food bag in bear country, fix a broken guy line, rig a failing strap on my pack, and countless other ways. More recently I’ve started making things just to be creative, and it’s fun, too! Now I have friends and family asking how to make paracord bracelet and about the different types of things you can make with the 550 cord.
There are so many designs and patterns to use when making paracord bracelets that it helps to have a resource you can trust. I found this article at Squidoo about some really cool paracord bracelet patterns, such as the Saw Tooth weave, which I’ve been wanting to try. I can’t help it, these bracelets are so much fun to make that I’m really addicted! I’ve even started making other things and am even planning to make a belt, which is how I found this paracord pattern article in the first place. There is another article on the side release buckles that you use when you make the bracelets which will come in handy as well.
If you’re new to making paracord stuff like this, then check out the article I’ve written about before, How To Make a Paracord Bracelet, which will take you through the process, step by step, and make it easy to understand. A local school in the area is even starting to make these for their own fundraisers, after reading about how some people make these bracelets in their school’s colors. Plus, they just look cool. Have a look, and let me know what you think… have you started making paracord bracelets, too?
