Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies
Cut 12-13 feet of cord three colors I'm using two strands of blue and one grey it doesn't matter if you have two grey and one blue either way it works. Depending on wrist size the one I'm doing is for a 8" wrist. You'll need •Scissors •Lighter •Buckle Jig (not required)

Step 2: Attach Both Colors To Your Buckle

I'm using a 5/8 buckle in this instruct able which is better for larger bracelets but you can use whatever size you want.

Step 3: Adding The Other Color

Find the middle of your grey

Step 4: Add The Grey

Step 5: Forming The Weave

Bring the right side across the top. Then bring the left side across that.

Step 6: Forming The Weave

Now run the left side under and through the hole. Keep the top color that you want in the middle on top of the other color.

Step 7: Tighten

Now pull it tight and make sure to keep the cords on the side from overlapping.

Step 8: Repeat

Repeat all the way to the bottom. Until you reach the end make sure to keep your cords straight.

This is same as other paracord bracelets
When you come to the end how do you hook it to the opposite end of the buckle ?

For those of you needing to find a way to end the bracelet I have come up with a way that I think works well. Take the two remaining cords and form a loop. Pass the loop down through the buckle then proceed to run it back over the top into a farmer's knot. Pull tight, cut ends, then melt the ends together. It isn't what is used in the picture but its quite functional.
very neat bracelet. Would appreciate some detailed instructions on how you threaded the base (blue) cord using two 12-ft strands. I know this comment may frustrate you and I'm sorry for that but would appreciate the instructions none the less....

Thanks!
Wow so cool

good job I use a wood burning tool to finish off cord. I use the wedge shaped one pres on cord cut it then hold tip to cord it will give you a nice flat end that will not pull out

Every cord

Every cord is 12 feet or each cord is of 4 feet

Looking at your design It appears there is a way to use one solid color looping back to the top for an even longer cord if needed. Instead of the two separate blue pieces for example. Looks good though

Again, you left out a step. How did you attach the cord to the end of the buckle? Also, why are you just using the 2 cords coming down and not the others that you are braiding?
Take a look at mine, it shows how
Oops nvm disregard this comment

They are neat and look fun to make...but what will it do for me in the way of surviving?
How do you use them I guess is what i am saying?
If you get stranded somewhere, you have 15-20 feet of strong cord that you could use for survival efforts. You destroy the "bracelet" functionality of it in the process, but at that point you care more about surviving than fashion. :)
Examples of use are: tying limbs or branches together for shelter/tools/cooking use. removing a core strand for obtaining food (either as a snare or a fishing line). Other rope uses... :)
It is worth noting that you need other things besides this to actually survive. A knife or blade perhaps. I guess you could chew the cord apart from the buckles, but a knife will work better. :)

Okay, I see that you have attached your blue cords, but you said the first step is to find the middle of the grey cord. I think you have cut out some steps here. Also, it would be nice if you discussed the jig you have to hold that buckle. I find that is the hardest part of braiding these.
wonderful.i realy like
.-. Lol we have similar names

Very nice, but please gove a little more detail on attaching the cords to the ending buckle!
I second that. You kind of skipped that step. It looks like you wrapped it around the buckle then wove it back in to the main part of the bracelet?
I always put a couple of drops of super glue around the melted ends because I've had them pull out. I spray my bracelets with Pledge floor wax with Future shine or Aqua Net hair spray. It tightens the bracelets up and helps keep them clean.

Very nicely done and easy to follow. Thanks.
