Default paracord project help.

I'm not very good with figuring out how some paracord projects go together but I was wondering of someone could make one of these and post pics of their *how to* thanks.

Harvister,
Do you know how to make a standard cobra stitch?
If so, you will be able to figure this one out fairly easy. If not, look for a 'how to' on the standard paracord cobra stitch bracelet, and do a little trial and error. To get a fixed loop on each end of a cobra stitch, just use one piece doubled over as your core. But instead of having the two ends coming out of one side, have them face eachother about halfway down the core. You can even tape them head to head to keep them in place while you start your stitch. when you get to them about halfway through your cobra stitch, just stitch right over them and you will have two fixed loops, one sticking out of each end. Hope this helps. I'll try to find some time to post a couple pics soon.

Don't be discouraged by the fancy knot names either. There's nothing really special going on here other than the cobra stitch. It looks like he might have made this out of a single piece of paracord. Instead of using one for the core, and one for the stitch.

Measure out how long you want your loop, and how long you want your stitch. Add em up, double it over, put your knot at the number you came up with, and cobra down towards the loop end until you have the amount of cobra stitch you want. Open up the knot you made at the begining, wrap around your belt, and pull your loop through and there you have it.

Yeah that's easy if you know how to tie a cobra knot. There are several vids on YT on how to tie a cobra stitch/knot para cord bracelet. That's how I learned. Now I make my bracelets with the double cobra knot.
