3 color hansen knot paracord bracelet

3 color hansen knot bracelet

In this tutorial I demonstrate how to tie the 3 color hansen knot bracelet.

I have already demonstrated how to make a 2 color hansen knot bracelet. The 3 color version is not much different. But the look is even more colorful than the 2 color version, so I enjoy this style as well. This bracelet is, obviously based on the hansen knot.

Again, the tutorial is presented in video form, which I find suitable for demonstrating various interweaves.

So, let’s start with the supplies for tying the bracelet.

Items needed

You will need the following supplies:

  • type 1 paracord. This cord is usually about 1.8 mm in diameter. For this bracelet I used 3 cords in different colors, each 7 feet in length
  • a mandrel. I use a dowel rod 1/4 of an inch in diameter. The lengths of the cords stated are for this diameter of a mandrel. For a larger diameter mandrel, more cord will be needed
  • a lacing needle. You can make one yourself
  • a rubber band to hold the standing ends of the cords
  • scissors
  • lighter
  • for the core of the bracelet you will need a piece of 550 paracord.

That is all you really need. So let’s start the tying process.

The tutorial

The bracelet is started by tying a 3 bight turk’s head base knot which I have covered in this tutorial:

Then this 3 bight turk’s head is doubled and interwoven usign the other two cords. See the tutorial below.

Finally, the bracelet is finished by tightening the hansen knot around a core made with 550 paracord. See how to finish these kinds of bracelets in this tutorial:

If you have any questions on tying this bracelet, please let me know in the comment section!

Enjoy your bracelet!
