multi color herringbone rope bracelets 3741 3742

 Traditional over two-under two herringbone weave incorporating multiple colored cords.

The first example is red, yellow, orange and ecru (white) in a 29 part design about 8 1/2" (218 mm) inside circumference.

You can see the tied-off ends where the overlapping cords are secured with waxed nylon thread.

These and other unique bracelets can be found online WhatKnotShop on ETSY
 The second example is a six color mix orange, yellow, red, teal and ecru (white). The layout of this knot requires multiple segments of cord and a lot of waste as the tails of each segment are lost when the knot is worked up to final form.

design is a 24 part double pass herringbone about 7" (178 mm) inside circumference
The colorful vertical orientation (I think the light is better somehow…)

you can get your hands on this one here
