On this page we describe how to make an anti-tick bracelet with the cobra knot.
For this knot you will need 7,5CM of cord per 1CM of strap. We are using an adjustable band of about 16cm and three pieces of 120CM cord. For bigger bracelets you need of course more cord and EM ceramic beads.
For the bracelet below you need in total:
3X 120CM paracord type 3
4X EM Ceramic bead
2X dog paw bead
1X Black cord stopper
Tie a knot in your cord and make sure that the middle colour is the one on which the EM beads will be placed.
Lay your cord down like this for the first knot and pull it tight.
Now lay your cord down like this and pull it.
Repeat step 2 one more time and slide an EM ceramic bead over the middle wire.
Lay your cord down like this and repeat the above steps until you have the desired length.
This is what it should look like after a bit of tying.
Once you have finished tying, tie a knot at the end like the one you started with.
Now we will start the finishing touches. Cut one of the outer threads on each side close to the knot.
Now burn the wire you have just cut so that it cannot fray.
Now we need to add the beads, these have a small diameter so they sit tightly on the wire. Pull the core wires of the last +-4CM out of the outer jacket.
Cut the core wires.
Slide the cord stopper over the two wires.
Now slide the bead over the cord
Make a knot at the end and fuse it in place, do this for both sides.
The band is now completely ready!
