Thanks guys. I really like the color combo in a cobra and was trying to figure out a way to bring the 3 colors together in a jawbone weave. I didn't want to weave a de-cored orange strand through like I would do on a cobra so making the core the 3rd color was my solution.
I start by getting the core to length on the jig. In this picture, I would cut the core strands right at my thumb so that it would be just below the knot that secures the core to the buckle. I then melt in the other two colors (5 feet of each) to the core. Then it's on to making a normal shark jawbone weave. I have tried making the core wrap around to the back (all one color looping through the buckles but ultimately like the control of cutting them short and having the one buckle with all 3 colors showing on it. Look at the pics of the bracelets and you will see one buckle side with all 3 colors. The other side only has one color. Next time I make a tri-color, I'll take pics so it makes more sense.
Hopefully these pics will make it a little more clear. First pic is with the 3 colors fused and ready to start knotting. In the second pic, the core has been pulled tight and the first knot made. After that it's just continuing the jawbone weave to the end of the bracelet and cut/finish.
Here's a bunch of 3 color shark jawbone bracelets that I have added to my personal use collection. Almost all variations of the ones previously posted here in this thread but with different color cores. My favorites are still dark multi-cam/black/orange and the desert camo/tan/teal.
