This tutorial will show how to make a paracord bracelet with a side release buckle. This can be worn as jewelry, and unlike chain, it allows you to store several feet or rope on your person at all times. When made on a larger scale, this can also be used as a dog or cat collar.

A reliable online source of paracord is Amazon.com. They carry a huge selection of cord in colors ranging from army green to rainbow. For side release buckles I recommend Creative Designworks.

More projects, links, and knot references can be viewed on my blog page, Stormdrane's Blog.

Step 1: Materials

You'll need paracord, or equivalent 1/8" diameter cord, a tape measure or ruler, scissors, side release buckle, and a lighter (torch lighter works best). The amount of cord used can vary, but for this example we'll use 10 feet of paracord to start with. Actual amount of cord used for the bracelet is about 1 foot of cord for every 1 inch of knotted bracelet length. So if your wrist is 8 inches you'd use approximately 8 feet of cord.

<p>Great job,&nbsp; you inspired me to make one of my own. I didn't have a snap buckle though, so I modified mine.</p>
I love the loop, how did you do it? <br>
&nbsp;This looks great - do you have an instructable on how you did it? I can't work it out from the photos.
OK, I don't think I need to post a full instructable for my bracelet because I just combined two posted instructables. But I will tell you what I did.<br /> Measure your paracord according to&nbsp;stormdraines version, but add 1 foot. Tie the knot&nbsp;that is&nbsp;in this version. <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/In_and_out_Knot_and_loop_Bracelet/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/In_and_out_Knot_and_loop_Bracelet/</a><br /> So I started it like kcardwel's but instead of tieing it to furniture and using a seperate piece of cord, I braided it like stormdraine. The end part was a little tricky. I braided it to the end until there was only enough room to fit the two loose ends of cord through the loop. I had one slightly longer end so I used that one to form the loop for the&nbsp; big knot, I think I tied a knot so the loop was in place. I then loosely wrapped the ends around the loop 3 times and then fed the cord through those loops (like a noose). I then pulled them tight and ran them down&nbsp;under the braids&nbsp;of the bracelet.&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> Hope this helps :)<br /> <br />
Wow that bracelet looks awesome u should make an instructable for that if you haven't already tell me when you do.<br /> &nbsp; <br />
&nbsp;Thanks for the great Instructable! I've been looking for a new collar for my Mastiff, Zeke, for a while now and thought the King Cobra stitch would look pretty good. I used 45' of Bright Red (wife's idea) 550 Paracord and a 3/4&quot; side release buckle, both from Supply Captain (thanks for the link). I also re-appropriated a &quot;D&quot; ring from an old collar so I could hook a leash to him for walks. Using some extra 550, I made a few Chain Sinnet&nbsp;bracelets&nbsp;based on the instructions from your blog. Great stuff, thanks for posting.&nbsp;
nice job bro.

<p>I see this is an old Instructable, however I just recently found out about Paracord &amp; so decided to give it a go. I followed your instructable. I had leftover paracord at the end of the bracelet so decided to continue over the top &amp; see how far back it would go. I used ~2.5m of paracord &amp; managed to do a bracelet for my wrist (~7 inches) plus half way back again. I didn't have any buckles on hand, so decided to just use a random scrap of leather &amp; some press studs to clasp it for this practice run.</p><p>NOTE: for anyone else using 1 piece of paracord, I found that putting some tape on one of the ends helped me remember which end I was going over top with (as it's always the same).</p>
<p>Nice idea, thanks for writing this up.</p>
