    • Intro: Survival bracelet with fishing lineI first saw these bracelets here on instructables and thought that they were absolutely awesome - so I decided to make one myself. The first one I tried to make was theParacord bracelet with a side release buckle . But it never turned out the right length so I made it differently.Then I thought that some fishing line in it would make the bracelet even more useful in a survival situation. So I knotted a bit and made an instructable out of it to helppeople makeing a survival bracelet themself. Image Notes 1. The finished braceletsStep 1: Things youll need- about 25 feet of paracord (depending on how thick your wrist is)- a lighter- scissors- about 15 feet of fishing line (depending on how you knot it or how often you wrap it around) Image Notes 1. a lighter 2. fishing line 3. paracord, of course 4. scissorsStep 2: Measuring your wristTake one end of the paracord and mesure your wrist by winding it around. Then take this length three times and cut it off. Melt the cut edges with a lighter to get themnice and smooth.http://www.instructables.com/id/Survival-bracelet-with-fishing-line/
    • Step 3: Making the central loopTake the cut-off piece and knot the ends together to get a big loop. Put it around your wrist to see if it fits. It should not be rather loose because otherwise it wont fit lateron. Its easy to shorten it, but you would have to untie the whole thing when its too tight.Step 4: Starting to knotNow you can start knotting the bracelet. Take the big loop you made in the previous step and lay it down in front of you with the knot facing in your direction. Now take therest of the paracord and loop it around the shorter bit. The ends of the long piece should be the same length. Make a overhand knot to keep the string in place.http://www.instructables.com/id/Survival-bracelet-with-fishing-line/
    • Step 5: The knot itself, 1Take the left-handed string and lay it over the big loop and under the right-handed string. Then take the right-handed string, lay it under the big loop and through the loopyou made with the left-handed string. Make sure that you pull the right-handed string from the bottom up through the loop and not from the top down.Step 6: The knot itself, 2Now its important to tie the bracelet right. Otherwise it will start twisting. If you look at the bracelet and the string comes out at the bottom, you have to pull it over the bigloop in the middle. If it comes out at the top, you have to pull it under the two strings in the middle. When doing it right, the bracelet should become straight. Anotherimportant thing is to make every knot evenly tight, so that the bracelet looks nice.http://www.instructables.com/id/Survival-bracelet-with-fishing-line/
    • Step 7: The fishing lineTie the bracelet until you reach the end of the central cords. Its time now for the fishing line. Repeat steps 3-5 with the fishing line. I know that its not as easy as it is withthe paracord, but try to make it as tight as possible. The best way of tieing it is to tie it shifted like shown in the picture below.If you want to you can just wrap it around as well. That is much easier, but I think that you wont be able to use the same amount of fishing line. I myself first knotted it butthen decided to wrap it around.Step 8: (Optional) More fishing lineWhen you reach the end, you can go up again. Like that you have about twice the length. It might come in handy someday...Step 9: Going up againWhen you are finished with tieing the fishing line, make sure that it will hold and wont slip off or untie itself. Then you can take the paracord again and tie it the other wayup again. Just turn the bracelet upside down and use the same knotting technique as before. Like that the fishing line is protected and the bracelet looks better as well.Step 10: The end of knottingWhen you reach the end, just take the ends of the paracord and slip them through the loops of the knot, pull it thight, shorten the string and melt the ends. If you do itright, the braclet will hold. If you do it wrong, the bracelet will untie itself by time.http://www.instructables.com/id/Survival-bracelet-with-fishing-line/
    • Step 11: Adjusting the lengthThe bracelet is nearly finished. Put it around your wrist and slip the knot of the middle strings through the loop on the other side. If youre lucky, the bracelet fits. If not, justuntie the knot and retie it at the right place.Have fun with your new bracelet!http://www.instructables.com/id/Survival-bracelet-with-fishing-line/
