Snake knot paracord bracelet

Let’s see how to make a snake knot paracord bracelet.

Mastering the snake knot will provide you with a useful knot you can use in many projects.


  • Difficulty: medium
  • Cord storage: medium

Supplies required

  • paracord¬†550

A bracelet jig is not needed for this one.

How to make a snake knot paracord bracelet

The bracelet is made using a fairly unique technique. It is best explained through image (below). When done, pull all the knots in the the bracelet to get a tighter look (as seen in the tutorial). If possible, I recommend that you try to integrate the part where the cords are connected into the bracelet’s core to increase its durability and making it look nicer. I used the diamond knot to finish the bracelet.
