    I loved this instructable. This is a gorgeous belt, and the instructions were wonderfully clear.

    I have attempted to make my own instructable of this belt here:

    https://www.instructables.com/id/Double-Cobra-Knot-Paracord-Belt/

    how did that picture of the hand won in a paracord contest

    I was talking to a co-worker about jewelry and metal allergies when I mentioned the belt that I was wearing. It only cost me around $30 to make one for myself and 2 years later still looks great. (Considering I was spending $5-20 on a new one when it started making me break out in an allergic reaction this was quite a deal.) I told him about this site and how to find this instructable so he could make one for himself. A few days later he tells me he can't find it. Now I know why. It took me a bit to find it myself (had to do some fancy tactics to find my 2 year old comment found here) only to find the instructable had been deleted. (?!?!?) I wound up using the link chip123 had to show my co-worker how to make one. I wasn't sure of the legal so I just let him view it on my computer and let him takes some notes.

    This really should be brought back.

    I'm not sure why Jake22 wanted to delete it, but I have been telling people about it for the past 2 years. Now I find out it's been deleted..

    This was the definitive guide to making a paracord belt, please bring it back for the public good.

    Does anyone have the method (or even some pix) of finishing the taper for this belt? I tried a dozen different ways of finishing this off, but none of them seem "right".

    I still don't understand the purpose of deleting something like this.

    https://www.instructables.com/pdf/How-to-make-a-rugged-and-handy-Paracord-Belt/How-to-make-a-rugged-and-handy-Paracord-Belt.pdf

    Can still be found here :)

    Try here: http://web.archive.org/web/20101027173634/https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-rugged-and-handy-Paracord-Belt/

    There is a couple of steps missing, but the start of the taper and the end result is there so hopefully that will help.

    Jake22 if your listening, and you really want this gone from the internet, you might want to have a word with archive.org. Still it's a simple variation on a common knot and someone is likely to make something similar, or even deconstruct an old belt they've made in order to recreate the instructions for people.

    Perfect, thanks. That should at least get me close.

    I tried archive.org before posting this last night, but for some reason was not getting any hits on it.

    I found it didn't give any hits if I missed the last forward slash, but when I made sure it was there it worked.

    I agree with the previous comments. I liked this one- the design and the clear instructions. I already made one and just now came back to make another and find it gone. What's up with that?

    Just because it was not entered into the contest you removed it? I really liked this one if someone else has a link to another like this one let me know... or the author could simply put it back up....

    Why do you want to take this instructable off? Anything paracord is worthy to be seen by everybody!!!

    Please put it back!!!!!!!!

    I hadn't looked at this page for a bit as my belt wound up being a "long-term" project. LOL Came by today to check out the taper and saw it was gone....why? I've looked at tons of pages for belts and THIS was the one that I went by because it was clear and the finished product had a nice clean look to it. Sad to see that it is gone.

    Too bad it's gone. I made one for a Christmas present. Took me about 10 hours and my hands were pretty raw after getting it all done.

    This was a very, very good instructable - if it can be put back that would be nice.

    hes also fake there's tons of videos about it

    Please put it back, the best paracord belt instructions I have seen.

    I don't get the "cross over the strands after each pair of knots" thing. Which strands do I cross over? Can you elaborate or post a picture or two showing which strands? Because quite frankly I don't get how or which strands to cross over.

    Thanks in advance

    I don't know where you quoting that from but as mentioned in step 6

    After each set of square knots (first on the right then on the left- Step 4 and 5).

    Cross the 5th strand from the left over the 4th strand from the left.
