Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

•Paracord (any 2 colors)

•Lighter

•S-Biner (the buckle)

•Knife/Scissors

•Tape Measure (not pictured)

Step 2: Measurements

•2 lengths of cord, both the same size

Find the size of the necklace you want, mine is 19". Using that measurement, multiply by 4.5, so mine went from 19" to 85.5". Add 12" to the new length (for ability to tie final knot). Mine is now That is how long you want each of your cord lengths to be.

Step 3: The Weave

Find the middle of each strand and lay them out as shown. Take the right middle strand and loop it under the left middle strand. Next, move the outside right strand and loop it under the left inside strand and back over. Make it tight. Alternate sides, doing the same but opposite. After the first weave with the left side, insert s-biner into the top loop, loosing the top right strand if necessary, then tighten back up. Repeat steps until you have reached desired length of necklace.

Step 4: Finishing It Off

Once you have reached your length, separate the left and right strands and make the last weave very tight. Then cross the inside right strand under both the left strands and the outer left strand under the inner left strand. Next, cross the left 2 strands under the right 2 strands, then back over and through the hole and pull tight. Simply burn and smoosh the ends and loop s-biner around.
