Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

You can use a pair of flush cutters or a strong sharp pair of scissors to cut through your paracord. You will also need a cheap plastic lighter to complete this project. You'll want a plain one with no shrink wrap, and you'll want one you don't mind getting wrecked.
  1. Watch the instructional video: How to Make a Basic Cobra Paracord Bracelet. As explained in the video, you'll need about a foot of each color of cord for each inch of knotting. Follow the instructions in the video to determine how much cord and knotting you'll need. Note that using the cord without the core strings will mean that you use a bit less, so you might not need as much to start with.
  2. Cut a length of pink paracord and a length of grey paracord to the measurements that you have established.
  3. Before you begin your bracelet, pull the 7 white core strands out of your lengths of paracord and just use the outside in your knotting.
  4. Follow the instructions given in the video to attach your cords to a .50" black plastic buckle and complete your knotting.
  5. Finish the knotting as shown in the video.
