blue herringbone weave rope bracelet 804

This is another herringbone weave pattern made from a very low density hardware store variety cotton cord.  The dye is a dark blue color. The knot is worked up to a firm shape and the soft cord keeps the resulting bracelet flexible.

In this view you can see the braiding pattern of the cord. It's pretty open and prone to snagging. The material takes the dye very well though.

delicate designs made with small material

A herringbone weave design using 1.5 mm high density nylon cord.

This is a 34 bight design but due to the small diameter of the material it measures only 6 1/4" inside circumference, about the right size for a child or young teen.

This type of high tech nylon cord was found at an Eastern Mountain Sports EMS shop. Many outdoor gear suppliers offer these types of high grade nylon cords in all kinds of color combinations. This one happens to be a classic red/black mix

See this and a number of other unique patterns and color combinations at these three online venues:


Here we see a typical three part common turks head weave using the 1.5 mm high density nylon cord. This one is a bit larger measuring 7" inside diameter and available here:

The flat or common weave is clearly visible in this view. 

These smaller materials create a much smaller scale weave pattern which goes well with smaller hands or for those who like a more refined look.

natural look soft mixed fiber knot bracelet 812

Natural cotton mixed fiber material for knot bracelets makes a relaxed finish to the fibers and lends a more "worn" look to the finished piece. This example is made from a soft laid #48 cord. The design is a 22x5x3 weave pattern.

 The size is 8" inside circumference which fits many size hands. The bracelet will stretch slightly. Shrinkage is likely to be less than a 100% cotton material.
