lighter
imagination

Step 2:

Take the middle of the shorter cord and fold it in half,and make a cow hitch around the middle of the buckle.

Step 3:

take one of the other cords and make one side the same length as the other cord on the buckle and make a cow hitch, and repeat with the third cord so that there are three cow hitches in a row.

Step 4:

take the cords and divide them in half, then take the right outer cord and loop it under the two inner cords. Then take the left outer most cord and loop it over and through the loop of the outer right cord, and tighten the cords.

Step 5:

repeat the last step until the desired length or go onto the next step to make the belt look cooler.

Step 6:

after repeating step 4 about 10 times I decided to change the pattern of the belt.

First what you do is you loop the right outer cord over the cords then take the left outer cord and loop it under and through the right cord. then reapeat step 4 once and reapeat this step again.

Step 7:

once there is about 1-2 inches left start doing cobra braids until there is almost no moe core. cut and singe the core close enougth that the core won't go inside the belt but not so that it is sticking way out, and cut and singe the outerr cords so that the belt won't unravel.

Step 8:

The end.

Why do you need 4.5ft paracord for? Do you mean that 3 cords is 32ft each?

The 4.5 ft of paracord is the paracord being wrapped; the center one. The 2 32' strands are the ones being wrapped around the center

I just wanted to know what is the name of this type of weave called.

Cool! Do you have any formula for determining length so there is less waste or do you just kind of wing it?

I kind of winged it, but I only had about 6ft left over, but you can easily do something with the leftover.
