How to Make a Harbin Heather Bar (Paracord) Bracelet by TIAT

Posted in Blog

Special Link: The Harbin Heather Bar was inspired by Harbin Hot Springs (an oasis I routinely visit) and a dear friend of Kristen and I named Heather. The bar, like its inspirations, is a dance between comfort, elegance and engineering, presenting for the first time, a “splayed weave” technique I’ve been toying with for sometime now. In short, I’ve long considered the way (some) advanced weaves are presented as far too cumbersome and literal. That is, instructors tend to show a cord going exactly where the finished weave suggests it should be. However, I strongly believe my “splayed weave” technique, coupled with the weave’s collapse, is a far more likely candidate for how many “complex” historical weaves were originally tied. Why do I believe this, you might ask? Because it’s easier. *smile* Video production by JD Lenzen of Tying It All Together.
