The current trend for thick, chunky paracord bracelets continues unabated. So here's a new take on this perennial favourite – a bracelet made not with Paracord but with i-cord instead! Not only are these a hot fashion statement, they can also be made into medical alert bracelets by attaching an engraved ID tag.
The Ryedale Bracelet is worked in 100% cotton and can be made in a range of colours to match your look. The step-by-step instructions include five different sizes so you can make one for all your friends and family.
