Here's a cool tutorial on how to make a one-size-fits-all paracord bracelet. This is nice because you don't have to measure out a specific length according to your wrist size. Let's get started!

Step 1: What You Will Need

Picture of What You Will Need
You will need the following:

1. Some paracord
2. A scissors
3. An elastic hair tie
4. A lighter

Step 2: Cutting the Cord

Cut a piece of cord that is about 6 feet long and singe the ends.

Step 3: Start Knotting

Lace the cord through the elastic band until it has reached the middle. Then, bring the right end of the cord left, over the band. Drop the left end over the cord beneath it, as shown in the picture. Then, hook the same end right, behind the band and up through the loop created by the other end of cord. Pull it tight.

Step 4: Continue Knotting

Now, hook the cord on the left right, over the elastic band. Bring the cord on the left side down over the other cord, pull it left, behind the band, and up through the loop formed by the other cord. Pull tight. Keep repeating this process, alternating between pulling left and right ends through until you have made it all the way around the elastic band.

Step 5: Finishing Up

You're almost done. All you have to do is snip the excess cord and singe the ends.

Could also substitute shockcord (used in tent poles) for a centre loop from buckle to buckle and tie the paracord around that...

I like this idea, very wise. Just one concern since I have huge wrists...at least that's what my wife says. What is the largest size it will reach, all stretched, and how comfortable will it be at that length? Maybe add a way of using bungee cord rather than the hair band to allow for making it bigger, kind of defeats the purpose I know, just looking out for my huge wristed brothers...hahaha. Great idea! I love reusing everyday items for this stuff.

Do you make the cobra knot tight or do you leave it somewhat loose - I mean - I know the knot will be tight but do you have the knots close and tight together or do you make it a little looser than you would a normal paracord bracelet so it expands for the various wrist sizes? I like that idea - I have friends and family who want bracelets (not all cobra knots but still :) ) and this way I wouldn't have to constantly worry if they measured right or if I tied it tighter or looser than normal so it was too small or too big. Nice and unique idea!

I pushed the knots fairly close together, but not too loose or tight.

Thanks for the quick response. You just got my vote :)

Awesome idea. Easier than messin around with a buckle.

That's just a very clever Idea, size is always an issue :). Thank you so much for sharing.

Clever! Haven't seen that done before!
