You will need the following:
-An aluminum water bottle
-Four stands of paracord each measuring 112" inches (448" total) or shorter depending on what you do at step 6.
-A lighter (for melting the ends of the paracords closed)
-Scissors or knife
-About 4-6 Hours
Step 1: Choosing the Water Bottle
Step 2: Starting the Weave
Step 3: Starting a Cross Knot
Step 1: Take two of the strands that are next to each other and make an S shape out of the cord having the right-most one cross over the left strand bringing the bottom half of the S under the left strand.
Step 2: Bring the left strand underneath the S and feed it between the two cords at the very top to the left of itself.
Step 3: Now feed the same end through the bottom of the S in step 1 and pull it tight.
Now repeat 3 more times to have 4 cross knots evenly spaced from the Chinese Knot.
