parts x bights x strands click here for explanation
The layout started with 4 bights (first pass around the mold) set up in a double diamond pattern. The opposing bights set up an even tension when the knot is worked up so it doesn't get all lop-sided.
The single strand or "pass" makes this bracelet able to stretch out to 8 5/8" (219 mm) and contract to about 7" (178 mm). It can slip on over a big hand then crush down to the size shown in the pictures. Works kind of like a chinese finger trap (remember those?)
More like this in my Etsy shop, including these other wide cuff designs in the white rope bracelets section.
