Bracelets, belts, necklaces, etc. of Paracord became very popular in recent years. And there is a perfect reason for that. They are super practical, you can attach any survival tool and remove them almost in the blink of an eye. Also, they are nice to do (it takes some time to learn how to make all those complicated and not so complicated knots, but in the end you will feel the satisfaction), you yourself did something and it will serve you well.
The paracords are extremely durable. It takes a lot to cut or damage a paracord. That is why they are so widely used for items like bracelets and necklaces. Once you learn, you can use your imagination and do almost anything using paracord and some knots. Some people have made bags, bags, wallets, etc.
In this article we will show you various shapes and knots to make a bracelet.
Paracord Survival Bracelet Instructions
We will start with the Fish tail survival bracelet. To begin with, you need around 12 feet of paracord, if you want to produce a 7.5-inch bracelet. And, of course, having it a little loose for comfort, you’ll end up with 9.5 inches.
Take a lighter or matches and melt the two ends of the paracord. Use clips or something similar to press the ends after heating them. This will prevent them from unraveling.
Next, prepare a bracelet buckle and pass the cord through both ends of the buckle. When you do that, always try to keep the paracord straight. It often tends to twist while you manipulate it and tie knots and so on, so when you pass it through openings, loops, buckles, etc., use one of your hands to straighten the paracord and try to unroll it.
When you have made the first tie at one end of the buckle, continue with the second. When finished, pass the two ends back through the first end of the buckle. You will have a total of four parallel strings between the two buckles. Now, repeat this same technique and make two more parallel cords, so that now you will have a total of 6 parallel cords at both ends of the buckle: two pairs must be up and one pair down. It’s time to start knitting.
It’s going to be pretty simple, so there are no fantasy interlacing techniques. You must have the two free ends of the cable in the upper buckle. If not, twist the ends of the buckle so you have the wires on top; will be weaving from top to bottom.
Take the cable on the right and screw it in the center, to the right between each of the three parallel cables. Pull the free paracord all the way to the left, horizontally. With the other hand fix any twist of the cable. Pull hard so that the intersection is closed. Take the cable on the left and do the same. Pass half of the parallel vertical cables and pull to the right. Squeeze the intersection.
Again, take the correct free cable, pull the middle and tighten it. Do the same with the left as above. You have to keep doing this until the end of the length of the bracelet.
When you reach the end, to make sure that all the fabric is tight and does not come off easily, you must take the two wires and pull them through the last horizontal knot, when you made the first paracord accessory in the bracelet. . Use a thin clipper to pull them. Then cut the ends one inch from the tight knot and burn the ends with a lighter or matches.
If you need to see how this is done, follow these quick and easy-to-follow video instructions on the Paracord Fish Tail Bracelet on Youtube.
Here is another tissue technique called The tongue of the dragon.
Take a long enough paracord; The length can be similar to the previous tutorial, approximately 12 feet or less. Interlock them as in the previous instruction tutorial: attach the paracord to one end of the buckle and then go through the other end. Adjust the length of the bracelet itself and braid the ends of the cord once more through the first end of the buckle. You must have two pairs of parallel strings. Again, fix any turn before continuing.
Then, start by taking the correct free cable and place it behind the entire bracelet, perpendicular to the length of the bracelet. Then take the left free cable and screw it over the two center cables and below the outer cables towards the right side. Pull the cable to tighten it and place it close to the buckle. Now take the cable, which you placed under all the cables. Now we will reverse the order of the threads: this should be under the two central cables and under the outermost cables. It will go from left to right.
Now again, you will have two free wires side by side. Take the top, place it over the other and place it under the outermost cords and over the middle two. Pull to the left side. Now take the second free cable (which is still on its right side) and place it under the center cables and above the outside.
You should be able to choose the pattern and keep moving until you reach the second buckle of the bracelet. Along the length of the bracelet, always try to keep the cables in good condition and eliminate any torsion.
When you reach the end, you will notice that the bracelet feels firm and solid, but the laces attached to the buckle will feel a little loose. Then, to squeeze the last part, pass the right cord through the buckle on the right side, from below. Do the same with the left cord to the left, from below and pull. It will be easier to proceed if you rotate the bracelet at 180 degrees, so that the final part is at the top. Now tighten the knot while doing two loops and pass the loose ends through the loops.
And finally, as you can probably guess, you have to cut the laces and burn the ends.

Another great pattern of weaving is the Slithering snake. Here is how to do it.
Start by placing one end of the bracelet buckle to the cable (as in the previous two instructions). Then, pass the two cords through the second buckle of the bracelet and separate the free cords from the bracelet. It is easy to manipulate them in that way.
Take the correct cable and make a one-inch diameter loop and swap the cable to the right; keep it above the bracelet. Hold the loop with your thumb. Take the other free cord (also to the left), place it over (and perpendicular) to the cord of the tie and move it under the bracelet and pass it through the first loop you prepared. Squeeze and fix the knot.
Then, take the cable to the left, place it on top of the bracelet and prepare the right cable so that it is under the first cable and perpendicular to it. Pass the right cable through the loop made by the left cable that you exchanged. So, basically, the right cable is the loop and the left cable is threaded. Tighten that knot and place the cord with which you made the loop to the left. You must have a left cord and a right cord again.
Again, exchange the right cord on the top of the bracelet. When you see the pattern, the cord should literally slip in a zigzag pattern parallel to itself. Take the other cable and loop through the right cable that you just changed. Press again.
Always use the sliding cable as a guide to know how to proceed with the fabric. If you repeat the steps described above, you must have a bracelet with a snake pattern # 8216; And remember, the sliding cable should always be on top and the coiled cable should come out from below.
When you reach the end of the bracelet, you can make the final knot that we showed you in the previous tutorial: make two loops and pass the opposite cord through the corresponding opposite loop. As you squeeze, you’ll be ready to cut the laces with scissors and burn the ends.
And here is an excellent YouTube tutorial of Slithering Snake Bracelet in each step of the previous instructions.
the Shark survival bracelet It also has a nice and harmonic pattern, so here are the instructions about it.
Begin by preparing the buckle of your bracelet and secure one end of the buckle with a paracord tie. This should be exactly as it did in the previous tutorials (and as shown in the video). Pass the two free cords through the second buckle and separate them. Take the left cord and screw it from below between the two strands of the bracelet and prepare a loop. Take the right free cable and rethread it between the two strands of the bracelet and through the left loop. It should look like you’re trying to tie your shoes by making the first tie.
Now, tighten the knot well and you will have the two free cables with inverted positions. You will have to make the same loop, but it will start with the correct cable this time (although it is basically the same, but since it only changed its position).
Then, threaded between the strands of the bracelet, prepare the loop, pull the other cord in between and through the loop. To tight.
Proceed to weave this pattern starting with the left, then the right, then the left, and so on. You should have the idea. At the end of the bracelet, make the two loops that you always do when you finish knitting a bracelet, as explained in the previous tutorials: two loops and, through each loop, threaded the opposite lanyard. Squeeze well enough and you’re ready to cut the ends and burn them.

For him Paracord Sawtooth Bracelet Here are the instructions to follow.
Start as usual: thread and tighten one of the bracelet buckles and place them through the second buckle. Straighten all twists and irregularities in the strings. Determine the length of the bracelet by measuring an existing bracelet that you have or simply use a measuring tool to obtain an approximate length. Always give one or two inches to have more space. If it is too tight in your hand, this will affect the blood flow.
Then, start with the first buckle of the bracelet: the free laces must come from above so that you can knit from top to bottom, as before. Take the two cords and pass both to the middle of the bracelet and turn them inside the center. Pull them through the opposite sides. Then repeat the same process.
Since there is no real knot along the length of the bracelet, it may be a bit loose at first, so try to keep it as tight as possible and always try to place the laces so that they are neat and there are no twists, or distort the boss.
When you reach the end of the buckle, you may find it a bit difficult to twist both cables through the middle, so better do it one at a time. You should already be familiar with the general pattern and the weaving technique.
In the end, there is no need for any special finishing knot, so simply cut each cord and found its end. Cut one or two inches from where the cable is screwed, so that when it is melted you can press it into the bracelet and it will merge and # 8216; It will be sealed to the bracelet.
Once again, here is a large sawtooth bracelet on YouTube.
A really beautiful pattern is the Summit of Riggers, that we will finally show you
You need two paracords this time. First start with one of them and make an easy loop through the buckle of the bracelet and tighten it around yourself. Prepare two loops with the free cables and screw them through their own loops. Keep the loops very loose.
Now take the second paracord and deliver it through the two loops. Half of the second paracord should be right where the buckle is. Tighten the loops one at a time. The loops themselves must come towards you, not under the bracelet.
Take the first cord you used for the base of the bracelet and make another loop to the right side, then pass the cord through the center of the bracelet and place it to the right. Do the same with the left cord. Always place them down while you prepare the loops.
Then take the ends of the second string and make a circle # 8216; with them, crossing the two ropes and exchanging places. Reorder the loop of the first cable so that they remain parallel to the circle of the second cable. This will make it easier for you to knit next. You should see the two initial loops inside the circle. Take the right end of the first bead and screw it through the right loop, so that it also goes through the circle. Repeat this with the end of the first left cord and screw it through the loop and circle on the left.
Now you can tighten the whole knot by pulling all the wires carefully. You will see that the second cable has moved with the first cable. Now you have to do the two loops again, but using the second cable (use the appropriate color cables to avoid confusion). Prepare the left and right loops and fix the circle with the first string. Again, pass the right cable through the right loop and the left cable to the left loop. To tight. You will see that this may seem confusing and complicated at first, but by repeating it several times, it gets used quite quickly.
To see the finish, check out this YouTube video, where you can see both the fabric of the Riggers’ Summit paracord bracelet and the final knot. And when you have finished with the loops of the final knot, you can cut the laces and melt them safely. Press the hot edges to flatten them and secure them in place.
There are a lot of knots and knitting techniques on the Internet, and not only that, but when you get used to knitting paracord elements, you can begin to experiment and try new knots, loops and knitting patterns.
