cut 2 strings, the 1st one should be around 6 feet long, the second should be able to go 3 & a half times around your wrist 

Step 3: Starting knot

the bracelets consist of a reg. square knot then u can either use a square knot again or the cobra technique (its easier but takes longer) keep using these knots until there is a loop small enough so that the big knot is able to go through the loop but not come out easiely. cut excess off and burn the ends of the ropes till they turn blackish,then try it on , u have a survival bracelet!
