white paracord herringbone weave turks head knot bracelet 1006

This wide cuff design is made with white nylon parachute cord. This material is slightly larger than 1/8" diameter with a fine woven cover over a soft core which make the cord naturally soft to the touch. Unlike hard braided cord this material can take a "set" once it has been knotted. The work up process must be done in a single session so as not to distort the cord resulting in an uneven tension and subsequent uneven shape of the knot.


Here's a large black paracord anklet/bracelet design you might also find interesting
This side view shows the 17 part weave design clearly. The soft cord has formed a flat surface on the knot instead of creating ribs where the overlaps occur.
This is a "medium" size measuring 8" (203 mm)
See this and a number of other wide cuff designs in the Classic Whites section of the Etsy Shop
or the classic whites section on WhatKnotShop Zibbet

All of the designs shown on the blog are sourced directly or indirectly from the Ashley Book of Knots which was published in 1944. You can find a copy on Amazon by searching on this title.

Additionally there are several published tutorials on this blog:
