How to make a Paracord Bracelet. There are many different Paracord braids, here are some of the most popular. The Cobra being the most popular, along with Fishtail, and King Cobra which is the same braid as the Cobra, but braided back over the original. You will get a different look depending on what colors you choose, some bracelets look better using 2 light or dark colors of Paracord, and some look better using opposites shades of Paracord.
Easy Paracord Drawstring Pouch First off, we'll be needing a drawstring.
Backbone Bar Paracord Guild This bracelet uses a single colour of cord that creates a backbone-like design that is surrounded by a series of framing spit knots. As it is wider and contains a series of complex knots, this is one design that can pack a decent amount of cordage around your wrist.
Wide Side Step Paracord The Wide Side Step bracelet looks very much like two bracelets woven together, but in actuality, it is two coloured strands woven together in one process to create one of the wider designs out there. Because of its girth, wearers will have two three and a half metre strands of paracord available to them if needed.
By weaving the red coloured strand within the blue, this bracelet looks strikingly like the unique striations found on a lobster tail. Serpent River Bar Paracord Guild Unlike most bracelets, the Serpent River Bar does not have a solid edge, but features a wavy, fluid pattern that gives it a unique look. However, one of the best features is that it is reversible.
The main side features waves, but the reverse side looks similar to a heart pattern. Rasta Paracord GuildRasta, mon! While this design showcases your Rastafarian pride, in essence, it is a four-colour Fishtail design that can be modified to use whatever four colours that you desire.
Caged Solomon Get Knotted Paracord The Caged Solomon takes a simple Cobra weave and ends up weaving in a different colour to give it a pleasant talon-like striation, but the increased difficulty in this weave comes at its tricky finishing point. This is another design that uses type one paracord and a dowel rod to create a round design.
Not only does this interweave look good, but you will also have three different strands of about two metre paracord at your disposal in the wild.
Double Stairstep Stitch Like the easier single Stairstep design, this bracelet takes things to the next level by adding another Stairstep within a Stairstep on top of a basic Cobra design.
Want to make things even harder? Try using two colours.
Heart Stitched Paracord GuildWant to literally wear your heart on your sleeve? This design uses a base Cobra weave and uses type one paracord to stitch intricate alternating hearts within it. It is as romantic a gift as one could hope to receive from a paracord weaver, too. However, because this uses a three cord system the difficulty of this weave comes in how tricky it is to set up properly. Hanging Bridge Bored ParacordUnlike other close knit weave designs, the Hanging Bridge creates a more loose knit design between strands that lends to its name, because it looks like a hanging rope bridge right on your wrist.
Building Blocks Using two unique colours, the Building Blocks design looks like building blocks stacked on top of each other. However, upon closer inspection, the big building blocks are actually made out of other smaller building blocks, too. Paralix Weavers of EternityThe Paralix pattern looks similar to a DNA helix design and is created by intricately weaving two colours of paracord.
While it looks simple at a glance, creating this can be fairly difficult to get right. Thin Line Paracord GuildAs a variation of the Cobra design, the Thin Line bracelet adds in a thin strand of colour, making it a popular design for police officers, EMTs, military personnel, and anyone with a specific colour-coded cause that they want to represent.
Mad Max Paracord GuildMade popular after being seen in the movie Mad Max: Fury Road, the Mad Max style is actually just a simple Cobra bracelet, but what makes it so unique is the closing design that also allows the bracelet to be tightened and loosened as needed.
Pulsar Bar Using two deeply contrasting colours, the Pulsar, or Binary, Bar is used to create a repeating pattern reminiscent of the binary code of ones and zeros. It is a way to rep your nerd pride without looking too bad while doing it. Checkered Bored ParacordWhat is more alluring than the classic checkerboard pattern? However, while pretty standard, it is a pretty time intensive weave to pull off. Snake Paracord GuildUsing one or two colours fused together, the Snake design allows you to get a unique bracelet where it looks like the paracord is swallowed into each other in a round design similar to that of a snake.
However, while you can also clip things onto the loops of this bracelet, the loops are more compact and less likely to snag. Tomahawk Sinnet Weavers of Eternity Although thin, the Tomahawk Sinnet is fairly thick in girth with a pattern that features one colour essentially framing a zig-zag pattern in the center.
Pokemon GO This is one of those designs that is more awesome than it is useful. However, by using a series of Cobra weaves as well as a few other items to help with the shaping, you will create a bracelet that is the envy of other bracelets. It also shows that you want to be the very best, like no one ever was.
Star Wars Kylo Ren Lighsaber Weavers of Eternity Following the wave of Star Wars mania, this bracelet allows you to embrace your dark side with a Kylo Ren style lightsaber design made out of a series of different coloured Cobra weaves. This bracelet uses a four strand weave of red and white with a little extra detail work using microcord to replicate the eyes.
Bane's Cuff Weavers of Eternity Extra wide and using six strands of cord, this is the widest of the wide bracelets and is right to be called a cuff rather than a bracelet. Sanctified Thick, wide, and labour-intensive — creating this design takes a lot of work, but is so worth it. The highlight of the bracelet is the chainmail style endless falls in the center, but with the addition of microcord accents, the design is given further interest to the eye. I get my paracord from the Supply Captain and the side release buckles from Creative Designworks.

The amount of cord used can vary, but for this example, we'll use 10 feet of paracord to start with. Actual amount of cord used for the bracelet is about 1 foot of cord for every 1 inch of knotted bracelet length.
So if your wrist is 8 inches, you'd use approximately 8 feet of cord.
Hold this point next to your ruler or tape measure and that's your wrist size. Take the center of the cord and pull it thru one end of the buckle either side of the buckle, it doesn't matter. Now pull the cord ends thru the loop until it's tightened up and attached to the buckle. You're going to measure the distance between the two buckle ends for the bracelet size for your wrist.
