In this video by BoardParacord! you will learn how to make the serpent river bar survival bracelet, with TITAN SurvivorCord or WarriorCord. The serpent river bar survival bracelet is a unique design that is guaranteed to be complimented.
To make the serpent river bar survival bracelet you will need one 6 ½’ length of red paracord one 6 ½’ of black paracord fused together at one end, and ½” plastic buckle.
To begin, fold the length of paracord in half at the point where the paracord is fused together. Take the free ends together side-by-side and put them through one end of the buckle, entering through the top of the buckle. Separate the two strands and pull the free ends towards you between the two cords all the way through until the paracord cinches down onto the buckle. You want to make sure the paracord is not twisted at any point.
Making sure that your paracord is nice and straight with no twists, work the free ends through the other end of the buckle, but this time entering from the back side of the buckle. This will give you your general bracelet shape. Now unclasp the buckle and measure out the length it needs to be for your wrist with the buckle ends being the endpoint. Any easy way to get the correct length is to put the bracelet on at this point.
Place the bracelet in front of you so that the buckle end with the cow hitch is below and the other end is above with the free ends coming out towards you. The black paracord should be on the right and the red on the left. The black section of paracord is always going to loop over the top of the two center cords that make up the spine, at no point will it go behind.
Taking the black working cord, loop it towards the left over the top of the two center cords, keeping a loop on the right sided and holding it in place with you thumb. Now take the red working cord over the top of the black cord that is on the left side, behind the red center cords, and through the middle of the two center cords and the loop created by the black working cord. Gently tighten the knot to the buckle end, keeping everything straight and in line.
Next take the black working cord that is now on the left and bring it to the right, creating a loop on the left. While holding the first loop in place, bring the black working cord back to the left side creating a second loop on the right side. Basically it should look like an S on top of the two center cords.
Holding the two loops in place with your thumb, take the red working cord over the center of the S and between the two center cords. Then around the back of the right center cord and up through the loop on the right side, entering from beneath. Gently tighten the work down, but not too tight. You will notice that the loop on the left will not be used directly.
Now you do the same two-step process except for in the reverse direction as before. You continue this pattern alternating directions with each set. Be sure to keep the black working cord above the two center cords. Once you get to the end, snip the ends of flush with the work and melt the ends into the last knot. And there you have it, your very own serpent river bar paracord survival bracelet.
