    I tied these paracord bracelets, but they're either too small or too large for the intended wearers. What other uses, rather than simple key fobs, could you guys suggest for them?

    Zipper pulls that you can use wearing mittens. Pulls for ceiling fans.

    Not to derail the thread, but.....



    How did you run the camo cord down the middle?

    I made one awhile back about an inch too long, now the S.S. shackle end is on one side and a small carabiner is on the other side,..makes a good handle for my Condor 10x4 bottle holder I take back and forth to work... every day..

    The Cobra Stitch requires an inner core to wrap around.. So you can tie up the center and then with a second piece of cord you can do the cobra stitch.. Another way is to "glue" the ends together and keep the meeting point in the center when you start the stitch.

    maybe tell us the sizes and the first "I'll take it" gets it for a song (or S+H fees) :)

    I know how to do the cobra bracelets with the inner core, but if you look closely the camo cord is actually weaves into the cobra stitch. It's not the actual core of the stitch.

    I bought (yeah I know, I bought one before I learned to make them) a reflective orange one off ebay. Was too small so I cut it up and replaced all the grey zip pulls on my Camelbak HAWG with lovely orange reflective ones (as it's the one I use when I'm out riding). Black Camelbak with Orange pulls looks ace. IMHO :)

    You could untie the ones that are too long and retie it.
    Find new friends with appropriately sized wrists. :laugh:

    i agree with Atomic... untie them and make something that is useful to you. or untie and fuse like colors together and make a bigger bracelet.

    Did you make them, or buy them?

    Buying them is hit or miss because of sizing is difficult.

    You can make these easily using youtube as an instruction and make it fit your wrist.

    Or you can do a double cobra weave so that the bracelet is thicker and has more rope to it in an emergency.
