Step 1:

For this tutorial, we are going to start with the green paracord. First, fold the green paracord in half to find the center. Take that loop and feed it through the slot on the female side of the buckle.
Pull the ends through and firmly tighten around the buckle.
Fold the green paracord in half and pull the loop through the buckle.

Step 2:

Let's go ahead and do the same thing with the black paracord to attach it to the male side of the buckle.
Take the black strand of paracord and attach it the same way to the other end of the buckle.

Step 3:

Now let's prep our black paracord to attach it to the green paracord by making some bunny ear loops.
• First, you'll want to measure the length of your bracelet using your measuring tape. Keep in mind that you want to include half of the buckle in this measurement. For this tutorial we are making a 7 inch bracelet.
• Using your finger to keep the length of the bracelet in tact, fold the two ends down to create two loops.
• Then take the right strand and pull it over the center and under the left strand.
• To finish it off, take the left strand under the center and up through the right loop. (See photos below)

Take the left strand and pull it under the center pieces and up and over the right loop.

Step 4:

This step can get a little tricky! We are going to pull the green paracord ends through the bunny ears we made with the black paracord.

In order to ensure that your buckles will be facing the same direction once finished, you'll want to lay out your green paracord so you can figure out which direction your ends are facing.

(If you do it wrong, you'll figure it out immediately when you pull the green paracord all the way through the loops.)

Follow the photos below:

Now take the right black strand and pull it over the center piece and under the left strand.
Now take the right black strand and pull it over the center piece and under the left strand.
Pull the left strand under the center piece and up and through the right loop.

Step 7:

Repeat Step 5 and Step 6 until you get down to the end of your bracelet.

Repeat Step 4 with the green paracord and continue on down the bracelet alternating between black and green.
Repeat Step 5 with the green paracord and continue on down the bracelet alternating between black and green.

 

Step 8:

Once you get down to the end of the bracelet, you'll need to finish it off.
Continue down until you reach the end of your bracelet.
Continue down until you reach the end of your bracelet.
To finish it off, take the last cord you ended with and pull it over the center and under the left piece.

    I love this design! I have now made two of these bracelets as gifts for my tactically inclined friend. I made her two because my first attempt came out too small at 7″ so I made the second one 9″ and it’s got a little room for comfort now. I love this pattern thank you for the tutorial!!
