You need 2 strings of a thicker material for example shoestring, packet string or Paracord. The stings needn't be much longer than your desired bracelet length.
You also need 2 coloured strings of any material for example waxed string, leather string, yarn, embroidery floss or Paracord. These strings have to be very long, therefore I didn't cut them until I finnished the bracelet.

Step by Step

Step 1

Order your strings like the picture shows. The two coloured strings are left and right and the two thicker strings are in the middle.

Step 2

Put the right string above the right thick string and below the left thick string.

Step 3

Put the left string above the left thick string and below the right thick string.

Step 4

Repeat step 2.

Step 5

Repeat step 3.

Step 6

Pull tight.

Step 7

Repeat steps 2 and 3 and pull tight until your bracelet has the desired length.
