How To Create a Nautical Bracelet, Part 2


  • Nylon cord: 1 yard (available at any craft or hardware store).
  • Scissors

Make it:

1: Start by wrapping the cord around your wrist 4 times. Add an extra inch on one end and cut.

2: On one end make an oysterman’s knot.

3: On the other end make an angler’s knot (if your cord is too thick, just use a simple loop knot).

4: Cut any excess cord (don’t cut too close to the knot!), and carefully burn the edges with a lighter, this way you’ll avoid any frilling.

5: Wear it and go fishing!
