This article tells you how to weave bracelet with plastic clasp parakorda. Similarly, you can do, such as a collar for your dog or cat. If you frequently go on camping trips or backpacking hobbies, such a beautiful bracelet will be located on your wrist, as a reflection of an extreme nature and lifestyle. Also, remember that you have on hand about two feet with strong cords, which can be useful in emergency situations when there is nothing at hand.

- Lighter.

Cord length may vary. In general, the required amount can be calculated approximately parakorda as follows: 10 cm Cord for every 1 inch of woven bracelet. Ie If the girth of your wrist, for example, 15 cm, you will need five feet parakorda.

Step 1. Measure the circumference of your wrist.

Step 2. Fold the cord in half and insert it into the buckle as shown. Then thread the free ends of the loop and tighten the knot.

Step 3. Undo the buckle and thread the loose ends in another part of it. Now you need to measure the distance between the ends of the lock to fit the size of the bracelet to your wrist. Add a couple of inches to the length of the circumference of your arm, metered in step 1 to the bracelet, “sitting” comfortably and squeezed his wrist. This is the distance you need to put on the end of the “mother” (the part that is inserted into another) to that part of the “folders” (part of which is inserted into another), which starts three pins. Look at the picture, if you do not understand what I mean.

Step 4. begins to weave a bracelet. Node, which we use, has several names: Cobra Stitch (cobra), Solomon Bar (Solomon) and Portuguese Sinnet (Portuguese). Take the left end and pass it under the “dual living” connecting the ends of the buckle. The right end of the cord under the left skip over the “dual living” and insert in the loop formed by the left end parakorda. Tighten the knot, not too much. Now we start from the right end and done a similar action: skip the right end of a “dual living” and the left – under the right hand over the “dual living” and pass through the loop. Addictive. This is the complete cycle of our site, with which we weave bracelet.

Step 5. Continue to weave until you complete the entire distance between the parts of the buckle. Sites should look the same, so tighten them all with equal force.

Step 6. Now, a pair of scissors, trim the excess end, melt it much lighter and push it into a knot. If you do it wrong, it is there anywhere to stay. Also go over to the second end.
