When you find that it will be useful for you to wear a paracord bracelet everywhere because of the survival functions that it has inside, a question about how to make a paracord bracelet may be the one that you have in mind right now. Making this kind of bracelet is actually quite simple. Moreover, usually the items needed are not that many. The things that you need to prepare are; paracord, which can be found in many stores especially outdoor supplies stores, buckles, measurement tape, scissor, and also a lighter that will be useful in melting the end of the paracord when you already finish making the bracelet.
If you want to know about how to make a paracord bracelet properly, you also have to know that the very first thing that you have to do is measuring your wrist for the size of the bracelet and also measuring the length of paracord that you need to make that bracelet. Here the units of measurement that we will use are inch and also feet. Inch is the unit used for the size of the bracelet and feet is the unit used for the length of paracord needed. Usually, if the size of the bracelet is 8 inch, for example, the length that you need for the paracord is 8 feet. The paracord is way longer because there will be a lot of knots that will be used to create the bracelet later.
Once the measurement is done, the next thing that you need to do in the process of how to make a paracord bracelet is starting to make knots after installing buckle in each end of the bracelet length. The type of knot that is more popular to use in paracord bracelet making is called as the cobra stitch knot or simply called as the cobra knot. This knot can be created by tying two cords around the other two cords back and forth. For this bracelet, the cobra stitch knot is needed to be repeated over and over again until the wanted length of the bracelet is obtained.
