I'm a few weeks into this obsession. Making bracelets with buckles for young grandchildren - very happy consumers. I've made the cobra and fishtail with few problems. When I tried Jagged Ladder from Bored Paracord I was delighted with the pattern, until I finished and found that the thickness of the bracelet made it much smaller on the wrist. QUESTIONS: how do you know, when the rule of adding 1 - 1 1/2 inches to the measured length is not enough? Has anyone assembled a list of the weaves that require more length? I can't tell from the photos from the top. Do the Paracord books help with adjusted measurements? Are there bracelet patterns that leave the length an adjustable option, until nearly complete besides the break-apart buckle? These tiny wrists, with big hearts, do not allow a lot of wiggleroom. Seems to go from too tight to falling off the wrist. Can you help this OCD Granny? Thank you.
