Why are you using 6 or more wires? 

If I group them in pairs, it won't be that neat cause I'm using bare canare which is quite hard to twist in pairs.

Yeah I thought of making flat braid, but just don't know how to do it. Mhmm, if there is a video that'll be great.

 

So meaning I just need to move the most outer one into the middle?

If you can understand this, that should work for a flat braid. (Theoretically, I've done it with 3, 4 and 5 and I don't see why it shouldn't work with 6) Bare canare comes twisted in fours right? I think rebraiding them might be slightly messy, but ymmv.

I think you can simply use this method: Put all the wires side to side, then take the two outer ones up, cross them and put them in the center. Always cross with the same side above (ex: always left over right), and repeat until all the wire is braided.

Seems the eBay seller offering the cheap paracord who's listing I linked to is gone (banned, lol).

 

Well, all_outdoor_and_more, asincal, sgentry46, and mrparacord don't look like they will get banned any time soon judging by how much good feedback they each have.

 

This blue looks good for an HD25-1 Adidas cable.  Or blue camo would look cool, too, I think.

Is this paracord hollow or do you need to take out the center first or something?

Yes, you take out the seven strands in the center, then you can use it as sleeving.  It couldn't be easier, no tools required other than your own hands.
