Another paracord bracelet variation...
'Ashley's Book of Knots'(ABOK#2505), calls this pattern the 'double tatted chain' and 'seesaw' knot. I believe I've also seen it called a zigzag knot. It's a simple pattern of half hitches with each side.
I used about 9 feet of cord(total of both colors, foliage green and coyote brown paracord), looping the center of each color onto one end of a side release buckle to start. To finish, I just looped the four strands around the other end of the buckle, making a singe cobra stitch with the outer two strands over the center two, trim and melting the ends. It works fine for a bracelet, but I think something stronger should be used if done for a dog/cat collar, though I haven't explored other finishes at this time.
Here's another bracelet made with paracord and some Cool Glow Stuff 3/32" glow cord.
And done with some 2mm cord and used as a lanyard.
