Introduction: Paracord Belt
Today, I will show you how to make a Paracord belt.
Step 1: Gather Materials
300 ft of Paracord (cut into 100 foot sections)
Step 2: Creating the Belt
create a cows hitch on the belt buckle (the side with the metal prong attached) create the cows hitch at rhe end of the cord. the shorter cord will be the core strands and this is how long the belt will be, don't worry about running out of cord because 100 feet of working cord has a lot of room to work with.
Step 3: Creating the Belt
Create a regular cow's hitch in the middle of the belt buckle through the metal prong
Step 4: Creating the Belt
Create a cows hitch exactly like the other red cord except the shorter cord is facing the other way
Step 5: Creating the Belt
Create a cobra braid on one side, then on the other IMPORTANT remember to cross the center strands and use the opposites in the next braid
Step 6: Creating the Belt
Continue the double cobra braid all the way until the desired length is reached IMPORTANT remember to cross the center strands of the belt
Step 7: Creating the Belt
Thread two strands of cord through the belt near the buckle on the back side of the belt and begin a cobra braid
Thread the cord through the opposite side of the belt (so there is a loop on the front)
Step 9: Creating the Belt
Start the cobra braid down the loop then cut and singe the ends.
Step 10: Finished

We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
Rather than just use the 100ft lengths and be left with unknown left-overs -- or possibly the belt being too short, do you have a formula for the lengths of paracord needed to make a specific length of belt?
