    The first thing I did with this is the fishbone weave (you can find out how to do that on one of my instructables)
    Then 2 layers of cobra weave.

    A good rule of thumb is one inch of bracelet uses one foot of paracord. In your example, you would need 40 feet. It's not perfect, but its pretty close.

    Hi! Every one of these instructions on braiding paracord are just for bracelets. Each one shows to use a ten foot length of line. In the case of your double-wrap, two such lengths are used, which makes a nine inch length bracelet. I want to make a spare line strap with biners instead of buckles, and want it to be about a forty inch length. How would I calculate how much to use for braiding for that length?
