Bonobo bar paracord bracelet

This bracelet alternates cobra knots to make an interesting pattern. The bonobo bar paracord bracelet is a sight to behold!

The meaning of the bracelet’s name is a mystery to me. But knotting a  one is not. I have made a few of these and I like the transitions in color that the bracelet offers. It is not an easy bracelet to learn though and I had to re-do it a few times when I was learning it.

Experienced knotters will notice that the bracelet is made using a series of simple cobra knots. The knot itself is simple. The only thing hard when making this bracelet is learning how to transition from one color to the next. I have made a simple tutorial that will show you how to make a bonobo bar paracord bracelet in the easiest manner possible.

You can play around with the number of knots you use. The usual way of doing is tying two knots, then switching colors. I did do another version where I made five knots and then transitioning. The result can be seen below.




  • Difficulty: medium
  • Cord storage: medium
  • Child friendly: no

Supplies required

  • paracord in two colors
  • a source of heat to melt the ends with (a lighter works just fine)
  • something to cut the cord with
  • paracord bracelet jig can be helpful

When tying the bracelet pay special attention when transitioning from color to color. Most mistakes are done in that part of the process.
