How to Make a Morse Code Bar Paracord Bracelet

Posted by Stacy on 2/7/2013

Very cool looking bracelet and easy to follow video instructions from ChaoticThinking1


Speaker 1: Hello, Iím Steve from chaoticthinking.com here today to show you an instructional video on how to make this paracord bracelet. This weave is called the Morse Code bar. It was created by user Jason TX on fusion knot forums. He posted a photo and brief instructions on how to make it, and I will show you a video today on how to tie this weave. Jason TX is currently deployed so not only do we want to thank him for the creation of this bracelet, and posting a photo of it; we also want to thank him for his service along with all the other men and women in the United States Armed Forces. I want to thank you for what youíre doing and hope and pray for a safe return.

Weíll go ahead and get started. Iíve already got my jig and my buckles laced up with the paracord. I have the blue larkshead down here spanning between the buckles, and my paracord joint is right here close to the top so that it gets covered soon. Throughout the center of the bracelet you see the blue instead of a mix of colors in the paracord blog here. But using five feet of the blue cord and six feet of the red cord here; this is uncommon because normally the color that is spanning the base of our bracelet is the longer color. But in this particular weave it turns out to be the shorter and you need more of the top color, which will be the red here, to do the weave pattern. You can also use a knot and loop type bracelet if you donít have buckles available. Iíve seen videos like that where it comes out like that, and your weave is around here; so thatís just another way to make it if you donít happen to have a jig or buckles handy or available. You can still make the bracelet and enjoy it.

Weíll go ahead and get started here. Iím going to just cross over and just tie a simple starter knot at the top next to the buckle to hold everything in place and give it nice and firm in there. Take our base color, come over with our loop, take our top color and come around up through the center like so. Iím going to come over and back down through our center loops and bring it out through our first loop of the base color; and like so. Now Iím going to take and Iím going to pull up on our first cord here that coming up through the center, the red here, and now Iím going to pull tight on our base color, on the blue here. Now Iíve got the blue pinched and itís nice and tight, and then Iíll pull up and take out the slack in that center loop there like so. Come back with the base color, loop over, top color is going to come around and under, up through our center loops, over and back down through our center loops, and out through our loop here. Again, Iím going to pull up to take out the slack here at my joints and pay special attention to it, and now Iíll pull my base color nice and tight, and then pull the base color and pull the slack out of the center loop there.

Come back with our base color, come over, around, under and through our center loops. Over, around, and through, and back out our loop, pull up nice and tight making this one nice and firm over here and come in with our base color. Now once we got our base color tight and pinching it here and thatís holding tight throughout on that side, and thatís also keeping this first loop that I pulled tight in place. Now I just pull and take out the slack here. A few more times here. Make sure we get all of the twists and turns out of our cords here so it stays nice and looks good. Come up, under, and through, grab them tight, cinch up our base color, pull out our excess. Now if youíre making it nice and tight, your center loop starts to alternate back and forth between the two giving you the proper design. One finishing knot, come over, half of a square knot there. Hereís our finished bracelet, I removed it from the jig, still got the thins on the end here. Iíll go ahead and show you how I finish. This is from Wal-Mart, I think it is called a cobble stitch tool or whatever you want to call it. I really like it; itís nice and heavy duty. The loop there gives you a nice place to hold on to. I use it as a marlinspike to get in and undo knots or get in thereóit has a little bit of a steeper point than the paracord fed does.

What I do is I just come in and since it does have a deeper point than the paracord fed it makes it a lot easier to push through. Once I get it through where Iím going to put my cord and my fed nice and jiggle it around, I make a nice little space, pull that out, then I come through with the fed and follow the path that I just made, and how easy that was right there. Get it down and straighten everything out here. Leave me a loop on there, now come over for the other side, and at this point since Iíve loosened up my last knot there Iíll leave my two loops and Iíll pull that last knot tight again, and then I pull through. Now it is nice and tight there, come take them down with my scissors, and there you have it. Itís nice and finished off there. Hereís what your undersides are looking like. Thereís our original and thereís the one we just made. Nice little superman colors that I didnít think about when I was making it up, and thereís your finished bracelet. Thanks for watching. Hope you enjoyed this video. Again, thanks to Jason TX for posting the video and sharing it with the world. Like and subscribe check out our other videos.
