Step 1: Supplies for Bi-tone Paracord Bracelet
1. Minimum 8 ft of paracord per bracelet *NOTE* Length may vary depending on width of wrist.
a. To make a rough measurement of the length needed, take a free end of paracord in one hand while extending your arm and draw it out while holding one end near your armpit. This is roughly 3ft. This should give you an idea of how much your cutting without using any type of measuring device. REMEMBER! It’s always better to have extra than not enough!
b. If TWO colors are being used, simply split the difference of cord used. For example, I have large wrists and I prefer the bracelet to be quite loose, so I will use about 10 feet of cord. So if I am using green and tan cord, I will use 5 feet of green cord and 5 feet of tan.
3. Scissors or Sharp Knife
4. Fastener of some sort
a. ParaCord fasteners can be found at most hobby stores
b. Leather Buttons
d. Various knots can be used, but require much more cord (monkey’s fist, ball knot, etc.)
This particular set of instructions is to give you the basic idea of how it's done. The principle of the weave can translate to anything.
