turks head knot wide herringbone weave sailor bracelet in nylon 199


1 3/4" wide cuff style bracelet made from continuous piece of1/8" nylon cord. This is called a "running" turks head.

You can see the over-two, under-two pattern which suggests the name "herringbone" based on the bone structure of the Herring fish.






The finished bracelet is somewhat flexible. The cord has been drawn up into a tight weave which holds the shape of the bracelet firmly in place.

The red beads are added for color.







A long time is spent tensioning the cord to reduce the uneven edges created by the natural bias in the weave. A smooth jaw round pliers is used to carefully tension the individual strands without tearing the nylon.
