Trilobite paracord bracelet

In this tutorial we are going to tie the trilobite paracord bracelet.trilobite-paracord-braceletOften also called the ladder rack paracord bracelet, it is one of the most basic and widespread bracelet designs out there. It is a bit similar to the fishtail paracord bracelet, but wider. This is because it uses a double core around which we weave our pattern.

So, let’s move on to the supplies you will need to tie the bracelet:

With these items ready, let’s start weaving.

Keep weaving tightly until you reach the other buckle end.

I usually finish the bracelet by taking a lacing needle, flipping the bracelet around and working the ends back into the bracelet.
