Step 1: Gathering Materials
For this project you will need the following:
-paracord I recommend about 10-12 ft just to make sure you have enough (black and orange)
-needle nose pliers
Step 2: Getting Started
Alright, first we need to make a four strands cow hitch setup.
Step 1: Measure 10-12 feet of paracord and cut it.
Step 2: Find the middle of the length of cord then fold it in half and make a loop
Step 3: Pull it through the buckle
Step 4: The loop will be the length of your bracelet, don't worry if it seems big, because the weave is pretty thick
Step 5: Take the right cord and bring it under and out the loop
Step 6: Loop it around and push it upwards from under the buckle
Step 7: Push the cord down through the small loop
Step 8: Tighten
Step 9: Repeat steps 4 through 6 for the other side
Step 10: Turn the bracelet 180°
Step 11: Bring the right cord down them upwards through the loop
Step 12: Bring the cord around and push it upwards from under the buckle then push it down into the small loop and tighten
Step 13: Repeat steps 10 and 11 for the opposite side
Step 3: Making the Bracelet
Alright, you are ready to start making the bracelet.
Step 1: Push the opposite color cord under-over-over-under the core strands
Step 2: Make a loop with the right cord through the middle and out
Step 3: Make a loop with the left cord through the middle and out
Step 4: Pull the opposite color strand under three of the core strands then over the last one
Step 5: Bring the opposite color strand back around over the two middle core strands and under the leftmost core stand
Step 6: Repeat steps 2 through 5 until you reach the bottom of the bracelet
Step 7: Take one outer working strand and wrap it twice around the core strands
Step 8: Pull it down under two rows, cut and melt
Step 9: Cut both ends of the middle working cord and melt the ends
Step 4: Finished!!
