    I did. Bracelet ended up being over an inch too long. They keep stretching out. What am I doing wrong? I check them after the first couple knots.

    It just takes practice.make sure you pull it tight every other knot.

    I had a few do that too. Just keep practicing man. Or build yourself a jig!

    What is the best way you guys found to finish this bracelet using buckles? I used my homemade paracord fid once to finish but I know I need more practice tucking the ends.

    Anybody have any good tips on how to keep this neat and tidy? I'm using my jig any trying to keep it as tight as possible, but it still looks sloppy. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    I just kept it tight and I kept pushing the knots together to help eliminate the gaps. I liked the way it looked but I didn't like how the end looked as I got close to buckle. I still have the bracelet lying around somewhere in my man cave. If when I find it I will post a pic to show what I'm talking about.

    Thanks for the response. I think it was just a lack of practice. Each one I tie is getting closer to the standard I am looking for. Thanks again.
