Not requiring a jig to complete, the technique is a handy one to know, especially if seeking to make quickly reproducible paracord ties (with buckles). p.s. This same technique can be used to add buckles to most my designs.

The Celtic tree of life symbolizes strength, longevity, and wisdom. It further marks the connection between earth, the spirit and the universe. Often portrayed in illustration, it's rarely if ever shown represented in rope…until now.

More popularly seen expanded and used as the means to create a rope doormat or scarf, the rescue belt is a slick way to create a shoulder strap, which can easily be undone to allow use of the rope that created it.

This said, the technique illustrate how little it takes to make a big difference in appearance. Take note, there are even more variations of this tie I've yet to show. So for now, have fun with this tie, knowing there's far more to come!

Popular lore is that Saint Patrick combined the symbol of Christianity with the sun cross, a sacred symbol and solar motif associated with Celtic mythology. Whatever its true origin, the symbol remains a powerful one. With a significance that has spread to many, well beyond its origins, and to all parts of the world.
At first glance the alternating hitches of the Zigzag Braid might suggest an unattractive or unpromising result. Still, dont be dissuaded; as the braid lengthens its repetitive saw tooth edges reveal a distinctive design.
