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

You will need the following:

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

<p>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.</p>
<p>Well if you push the paracord around on the hairtie while you are making it (step 4), you can fit up to 8ft of paracord instead of 6ft, increasing the size of the bracelet. This is what I did when I was making one for my friend with wrists with a circumference of about 9-10 in. Hope this helps.</p>
<p>Could also substitute shockcord (used in tent poles) for a centre loop from buckle to buckle and tie the paracord around that... </p>
<p>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!</p>
<p>I pushed the knots fairly close together, but not too loose or tight. </p>
Thanks for the quick response. You just got my vote :)
Awesome idea. Easier than messin around with a buckle.
<p>That's just a very clever Idea, size is always an issue :). Thank you so much for sharing. </p>
<p>Clever! Haven't seen that done before!</p>
