Yeah, I know...everybody hates him...

But I think his cuff is cool...and there's no way I'm paying $50 for it when I could make it for WAY less...

..that is if I could figure out how.

Any ideas?

And sorry if this is in the wrong froum.

Holy shit, he's even charging $50 for the "cotton cord cuff" that looks like a bloody shoe lace!  I don't even know what Project Runway is, I have basic cable lol but damn!  It almost looks like those rubber bracelets from the 80's twisted together, I'm sure you could just make a bunch of leather loops that size and just attach them like the rubber bracelets, then wind more leather around the knotted parts?  That probably made no sense, sorry.

Well, my idea as to making the black cuff...find some leather (or other) cording and...oh hell. I don't know. I wish it showed more views of the cuff. Sorry, I guess I can't help ya.

I love you more than cheese!

it looks like some kind of macrame knot. I have a friend that makes all kinds of stuff like that I will make her take a look at it and see if she has any advice...
if your local library is anything like mine it will have a ton of old 70's craft books with macrame in it and you may be able to find a similar way to make the knots.
did you know that he has a blog?
dirty diana has one too:

I just found the online Project Runway shop and saw that the cuff is $50 and my jaw dropped.  Bitter that I didn't think of it first ( Wink) I decided to figure out how to do it.  I'll try and post pictures when I can figure out how to take them...  it's really simple, just a case of looping the cord through itself, it's not even knots.  SO easy.  Can't believe they're ripping people off.  But I can see that people would buy it, because personally I saw him wearing it and fell in love with the idea.  Like I said, I wish I'd thought of it first so I don't seem like a copycat when I do it!   Not that that'll stop me... hehee...

I liked that too when I saw it. It is easier to see the pattern when you look at the neon one.

you can get cording and bola from http://www.firemountaingems.com/jewelry_crafts.asp#BolaSupplies  it looks like two loops intertwined and pulled apart like what people did with the rubber bracelets.

Oh geez. the other day I cam back t this topic and just stared at the pictures for a long time until i figured it out. It turned out to be a lot easier than I thought it would be. The problem is I can't find the right type of cord...I was pretty sure we had some in the basement...it's just a matter of finding it.

And...i would try and describe how to do it...but I'm not so good at description..

looks like a knit. first row is the cast-on then one row of knit (or purl depending on how you want to do it) then a bind off to keep the two ends together.

I'll take a stab at describing it...

I'd estimate about 1-2 yards of cording, then fold in half. The loop you get at the folded end is the loop at the right part of the photo. then wrap left to right under the wrist, go through the loop, then leave a loop. Go right, under, and up, through the loop you left in the previous instruction. Leave another loop and go to the left, under and up again. repeat until desired length or until you run out Smiley.

Take the remaining few inches of cord and wrap it around the last doubled strand. I personally would use a dot of glue to hold the cord, OR if it's nylon, carefully melt the tip and press against the underside (NOT WITH THE FINGERS! It will burn you!).

Now, disclamer time : I have not tried this, and am just going by what I see in the pictures. I hope that I am correct, but if not, I hope I have given you a good starting point.
