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.
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
- 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 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!
