Introduction: How to Make a Cobra (paracord) Lanyard

In this instructable I'm going to show how to make a cobra lanyard.

I'M WARNING YOU THIS IS MY FIRST INSTRUCTABLE AND IT MAY NOT BE SO GOOD :)

My pics are blurry ... sorry 


Step 1:

Gather your materials:

SCOUBIDOU strands

scisscors

lighter

Step 2:

Pick out 2 SCOUBIDOU strands (different colors)

then... 

make a loop with the first one then tie it with the second one.


Step 3:

Step 4:

 Now you must 

1..."exchange"  2a and trade places with 1a

2...Bring 2b left and below 2a

3...and 2a over 2b

4... behind 1

5...and through the hoop 1 made

Step 5:

now tighten it more so it is not loose

then do the opposite 

2b to the right

and 2a over 2b

then 2a behind 1a and 1b

and finally 2a through the loop 2b made

then tighten

Step 6:

repeat  steps 2-5

and make to the desired length. 

now, to make a bracelet you should take the remaining strands and loop it through the (very first loop we made)...(1)

then make a knot ... cut of the ends with the scissors and burn those ends with the lighter

    good job on the para cord. Brings back memories... I'm sure people nowadays don't even know this stitch. Question for you, would you happen to know how to make the Cobra hood?
