Paracord Bracelet with Monkey Fist Button
I saw the paracord bracelet by Stormdrane a couple of months ago, and had to make some; one night, while insomniacking, I was inspired, and had an epiphany: whynot make a paracord bracelet, using a Monkey fist and loop as a closure, instead of a buckle or button?So, here we go: a paracord bracelet with a Monkey Fist knot acting as the button.
step 1:
Ingredients
-Approximately 7 to 8 feet of gutted paracord; more depending on your wrist size. I measured the ratio of cord to weave once, and promptly forgot it.-A pair of scissors or sharp Swiss Army knife.-A lighter to melt fraying ends.-A marlin spike or similar pokey object, used when dressing the monkey fist knot; it should be as tight as possible.-A skully bead, available at craft stores near you; all kinds are available online, too.-Time: 2 hours for first attempt
step 2:
The Skully Button
The hardest part of the project, after procuring the skull beads, will be the monkey fist. It was intended for use as a weight on a heaving line, in order to get larger, non-throwable hawsers from ship to jetty. I think it is a nice looking knot, and also resembles a head with a turban on it.
Take the inner strands out of the paracord, as this reduces the bulky look

step 3:
Wraps and fraps
Hopefully these pics and diagrams will help; if not, there are lots of good knot-tying sites online.Begin with your single, long piece of paracord; while tying the Fist, try and get it as close to the center of the piece of cord as possible; this will save a lot of cursing andswearing later on when dressing / tightening the knot.Using the fingers, make 3 turns around the hand; as part of Mountain Ops training, we called these verticals 'wraps'
