    I have never found a satisfactory way to incorporate a center stripe on a king cobra bracelet. The problem is that there's no good way to pull the center cord back through the stitching to the underside before you get to the end. That means you have to take it all the way to the end, and either cut it off and burn it on the outside, or pass it through the buckle to the underside. Both of those options just look kinda sloppy to me.

    If you really want to do it, you'll have to work the center cord in at the end of your single cobra stitching, one or two stitches before you reach the buckle, before you turn around and start the king cobra stitch. Then the cord will be available to work over and under your king cobra stitching.

    hey buddy, if you want beefy, try using 4 1/4'' cords

    on the end you will finish on, have the 2 loops as shown, the inside loop about a 1/2 shorter.
    run the single strand down thru that loop, the continue 2 more cobra knots,
    then run the cords back to the single strain under your knots using your fib

    hope i did not confuse you

    cheers for the help guys, think your posts have given me an idea, put the blue thread through the beginning and end of the first cobra pass loose then go over under with the king cobra pass and pull the blue thread tight from the back and cut and seal, dunno if ive explained it very clearly but i think its the method ill try ill post pics to let everyone know how i get on!
