Introduction: How to Make a Tire Tracks Paracord Bracelet

Followers and rest: Sorry for my lack of depth on this instructable. The descriptions are no longer crappy and misleading. Enjoy!

Step 1: Supplies

To make this bracelet, you will need a strand of paracord that is 7-ish feet long, two strands of identical length, each a little longer than the desired circumference of your bracelet, a lighter, scissors, and a suitable buckle.

Step 2: Get Ready

Pull the two short strands through a loop of the buckle. Burn their ends together with the lighter.

Step 3: Start the Knot

Tie the cobra knot around both strands.

Step 4: The Cobra Knot

Tie the aforementioned cobra knot on one strand, alternating after each knot.

Step 5: Finish Up

Cut the ends of the paracord off that came from the weave and burn them. Sorry for the lack of quality photo for this step.

Step 6: Finish Up Pt. II

Once you have tied the weave leaving an inch or so, pull both of the remaining strands through the other loop of the buckle and burn them like in the second step.

Step 7: Done

Nice work.

Made this - great instructions!!! When I looked at the back I noticed I could see the 'hitch' or inner cords. So I made a two color hitch, and two colors for the weaving cords and kind of did it upside down (well not really - I attached my buckles to my jig upside down, then did this weave), What I ended up with was a 4 color bracelet

I remember learning this from a YouTube video last summer... the original designer calls it the Stiched Solomon Bar (its also featured on Stormdranes blog)
