If you're familiar with the cobra weave, then this should be a fairly easy bracelet for you to make.

Materials

Paracord
Strand one (blue cord)- this will be used for making the 'x's and the knot. You will need three times the size of your wrist, plus enough to easily tie a knot. I usually add about 8 inches for the knot I'm making. I used 56½ inches for strand one.

Strand two (red cord)- this strand will be used for the cobra weave. Double your wrist size and add roughly 6-7 ft (or, for those of you who make cobra weave bracelets, about half a foot more than what you would normally use. I used 7ft 7in for strand two.
**Keep in mind that its better to have too much string than too little because its easier to cut off excess than to add string.**

Step 1: Step 1

Picture of Step 1
Fold strand two in half, and then from the folded end, measure half an inch longer than how big you want your bracelet to be. Taping where this fold is isn't necessary, but can make it easier to make sure the length stays the same. Fold strand one in half as well.

Step 2: Step 2

Picture of Step 2
Using strand two, put the left end behind, and the right end in front. Put the middle of strand one just above where the taped fold is on strand two, leaving enough space to loop cord through. The ends of strand one should hang on the left and right sides of strand two.

This looks really cool. What kind of paracord did you use?
