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