Conquistador paracord bracelet

Let’s see how to make one of my favorite bracelets.

The conquistador paracord bracelet has a few remarkable characteristics. If done using loose loops like in the image above, it stretches! That makes it really comfortable to wear, plus it adjusts to your wrist a bit as well.

You can naturally tighten the loops that make the bracelet and get a more compact look. Try one of each and decide!


The other nice benefit to this bracelet is that is is fairly thick and wide. In fact you can decide how wide you want it to be by adding more starting loops. In the bracelet I made, I used three rows of loops. You could go with more if you so choose.

This is one of the bracelets I only do with a buckle, since it looks a lot better with it than with a knot and loop.

How to make a conquistador paracord bracelet

Before we start, I would like to offer a few important tips:

  • make sure your loops look equal
  • take care that you do not mistakingly leave out any loops. A single missed loop will leave a hole in the bracelet.
