Let’s take a look at how to make a paracord shark jaw bracelet!
In my opinion this is one of the most attractive bracelet designs, but many people give up on it, because it can seem quite demanding to learn. This is not the case at all! I encourage you to make these bracelets for your friends and family, they make great gifts and look superb.
Some people also call this knotting technique the “piranha knot”. When I started my project of making these I spent over an hour perfecting my technique to make it work. Because of that, I have decided to make my tutorial, to help you breeze through this knotting pattern. It is not hard to make if you understand it.
My tips for making this bracelet:
– Tighten your knots firmly
– Do not be too worried if the first few knots do not look as they should, it will work out
– Adjust knots as you go
– you can use either side of the bracelet, both have a beautiful shark jaw pattern
– Eat your vegetables (does little to improve the look of this bracelet)
See the paracord bracelet instructions below to see how to make one. There is also a video on this bracelet available.
Below you will see the steps required to make the bracelet. Enjoy!
Join two colors of paracord.
Attach one end of the cord using a lark’s head knot to one of the parts of the buckle.
Feed the ends through the other piece of the buckle.
The weaving process
Take your secondary color (on the right) and feed it through the middle two cords. Over the first, under the second (also behind the cord on the left.)
With your primary color again go through the middle two cords, over the first, under the second.
Using your primary color (blue) go under and through the loop made by the first cord.
To make another knot, again take your secondary color, which is now on the leftand go through the middle.
Do the same with your primary color (blue).
Feed the primary color under and through the loop made by the first cord.
Tighten. Then again begin with the secondary color (black), this time on the right.
Keep weaving. Tighten knots firmly and equally.
When you reach the bottom you can simply cut and melt the cords.
Alternatively, you can tuck the ends under the bracelet to hide them.
Ends tucked under the bracelet.
Enjoy this bracelet!
