Step 1: Paracord Weave - King Cobra

The King Cobra Paracord Weave with a black tracer. This is the same as the cobra weave, but weaved back over itself. The tracer is a piece of micro paracord weaved in with the outside piece of paracord. It is the widest of the paracord weaves, and use about 20 feet of paracord. Next learn how to make a Survival Bracelet. See more Paracord Knots.

Step 2: Paracord Weave - Boa

The Boa paracord weave is a little more complicated, and its best made on a jig. It is weaved horizontally back and forth, just over a 1 inch wide. Continue to see next Parachute cord Bracelet.

Sidewinder Paracord weave, is best made with 2 colors, and is just over an inch wide.

Step 4: Paracord Weave - Cobra

This is the Cobra paracord weave, made with a pink tracer. This its the most popular weave. Besides adding a tracer you can add a flatine or double flatline, which is a piece of paracord, with the center strings taken out, and weaved into the top of the paracord bracelet.

Step 5: Paracord Weave - Viper

The Viper Paracord Weave, is a newer weave with a more aggressive look. It is the same width as the cobra braid, you can also add a tracer.

Step 6: Paracord Weave - Rattler

Rattler Paracord weave is a newer weave, it does not use as much 550 paracord as the other weaves, about 8 feet.

Step 7: Paracord Weave - Mamba

The Mamba Paracord weave is one of my favorite weaves, it only uses about 8 feet of 550 paracord.

Step 8: Paracord Weave - Fishtail

This is the Fishtail Paracord weave, is one on the more popular weaves, and is also the thinnest braid at 3/4 inch. See the ViperParacord Bracelet Check out the new Paracord Blog Paracord, Try more the Viper Paracord Bracelet, or these otherParacord Projects.

    I really like how you have collected all the different types. Also how you have added some projects or links to more detailed instructions.

    if you look up trilobite paracord bracelet, you will find more detailed instructions. Many of these weaves are known by different names, the OP must have just liked the sound of snake names.
