With that much 550 cord at hand, it was only a matter of time before I was going to do something crafty with it, and I ended up making an infantry bracelet, which you can see in the image above. I figured some of you might have vast amounts of spare time and an excess of 550 cord at hand and might want to make your own (they make nice gifts for family and friends), so here are instructions.” – Thanks Shawn!
