White paracord herringbone weave bracelet small

A small, tight 17 strand x 33 bight herringbone done in paracord and worked up to a firm finish.

This is an "over two-under two" herringbone weave pattern made with a single pass of cord. The "V" weave pattern is clearly visible.

Size is "small" and this is rather stiff shape that will not shrink however parachute cord is known to absorb water and retain a "set" once knotted firmly.
