fishtail braid rope bracelets with button loop 3816

Using a thicker cord and a variety of buttons this series of fishtail braid bracelets takes shape. These are big chunky wrist wrappers (risk rappers?). The braid is often used by women with long hair and searching on the term "fishtail braid" will confirm this, however it is also a useful technique to make these bracelets (no hair involved).
