Round 3: Fishtail Bracelet

Welcome to round 3 of the #knotgames2018.  After a really good yet complicated round 2 we’ve decided to go back to basics. The brief is to create a fishtail bracelet out of paracord. You can modify the basic weave in a number of different ways, as well as adding stitching in micro cord, leather, etc. the possibilities are endless.

We will be judging on creativity, wear ability and style. So get your thinking caps on and let’s see what you can come up with.

The competition starts today, Sunday the 15th of April and ends on Sunday the 6th of May 2018.

There will be an amateur and a professional winner, who will be announced by Friday the 11th of May


@knotparacord – Me, the creator of KNOT Paracord online paracording magazine and avid paracorder

@krugeredc – A very talented and experienced paracorder from Sweden who works in Kenya and raises money for Rhino conservation through the sales of his stunning bracelets with hand crafted Rhino beads on them

@covenant.gears – An artisan creator from Indonesia, who creates the most stunning and creative hand made paracord beads and shackles, made of brass, copper, bronze and silver
