OD paracord turks head knot bracelet 1612

 Small size plain weave design turks head knot rope bracelet made with olive drab colored parachute cord. This is a highly engineered synthetic cord with a braided cover and a soft multi strand interior very popular with makers of so called "survival bracelets".

In this design the knot has been worked up to a nice and firm shape on a PVC mold and the cord has been evenly tensioned to produce a very flat and somewhat stiff result. The paracord is very smooth and once worked into shape it takes a set that retains the shape of the mold.
This example is a "small" size measuring 7 1/8" (181 mm) inside circumference. The paracord has been tensioned during the work up so there is almost no stretch in this bracelet.

This item is available here. See more solid color rope bracelets in cotton and synthetic fibers in the solid colors section of my Etsy shop.
