Hi Everyone, my apologies for not posting for some time now and not answering viewers questions. Thank you for all the kind comments they really motivate me to create new posts. I will do my best to start adding more paracord projects to this blog and I will combine my Paracord Projects with my other blog Flaming Furnace.

Wide paracord bracelet, two colors (solomon bar)

Wide paracord bracelet is a nice project, it takes a bit of extra paracord and time but the final result is rewarding. In this case I used 2 colors for this guide.
Step-1 you will need paracord, lighter, scissors, curved plastic buckle. In image 1 you can see a good plastic buckle for survival bracelet unfortunately it was to small for this wide bracelet, In the other images I used flat buckle which is a bit uncomfortable on the wrist, not recommended so it's only to show how to make this braclet.
Another thing it is easier to make the knots if you fuse all cord ends before starting.
Step-2 Tie the 3 cords in a simple cow hitch knot around one side of a buckle.
Step 3-13 Are all the steps you need to know. after that it's just repeating it again and again until you can fit it comfortably around your wrist.
step -13-36 just showing how to keep on with the same knot routine.
Step - 37-38 slide 4 inner cords (not 2 external cords) under the first knot.
Pull tight all the cords after sliding them into the knot, cut close the extra cord and fuse carefully all loose ends.
*** A good way to remember the steps is always start first with external right cord then second cord in from the right , then external left cord and inner left cord.
** Dont forget to cross the center cord (black cord in my example) the same way every step, if you see distortion in the knots untie one or two steps back and do it again.
At the end you will get cool wide paracord bracelet, one side will look like double survival bracelet and the other side with x between every knot.

Love the blog. One question on this one, How long are the cords for what diameter bracelet? I can guess the runners as the same as the circumference, but the warp cords are a mystery to me.

Thank you for all the kind comments ;-)
Correct about the runners. To get the circumference size just multiply the cords length by 2. For example if you know the size of a survival bracelet over your wrist just multiply it x 2. Thats the way I do it and it always works for me.

brilliant share!A bangle bracelet is one that goes on over the hand. It is a circle and stays a circle. Traditionally very common and attractive bangles are of this kind. They are known by different names in different places of the world.You could get more information through this website.

I love the thickness of the bracelet. Not bad and provides some variety.

I am impressed with your blog. I am, however looking for a paracord watchband that does not have the cord running under the watch. All the watchbands I have seen thus far have the cord running under the watch. Thanks
