Thin line paracord bracelet

Thin line bracelet is stunning.

A well known bracelet design, the thin line is one of the best bracelets to learn. It is easy to make, looks simply stunning. In essence it is a variation of the solomon bar/cobra knot bracelet, but it prides itself with a nice line of cord in the middle.

The bracelet is often referred to using with different names:

  • red thin line bracelet- used by firefighters
  • blue thin line bracelet- used by police officers
  • white thin line bracelet- used by medical personnel

Naturally, other professions can be represented using this bracelet, for example green for the soldiers, yellow for, well…maybe beekeepers?. As such it is quite versatile and makes a nice, personalized gift.


  • Difficulty: low
  • Cord storage: medium
  • Child friendly: no
  • Other names: thin solomon bar, thin cobra knot

Supplies required

  • paracord 550 in two colors
  • something to melt the cords with, a lighter
  • scissors to cut the cord
  • bracelet jig is handy to have around as well

How to make a thin line paracord bracelet

The process is simple and is very similar to the way we do the common cobra knot bracelet. As such, I suggest you take a look at the tutorial below.

I am a defense science graduate. I like to create beautiful things out of paracord.


  1. I have just started using paracord and am confused by the thin line paracord pattern. In the first part of the cobra knot you go between the cords – in the second part you go around both cords. Do you repeat this pattern: first between and second around? All directions I have seen go from the first tie to the second and then to the finish with no suggestion of how to continue the pattern. Please help.
    As a visual, black cord is hard to see where it crosses and black cord on a black background is almost invisible. Could someone do another rendition of this bracelet with maybe red and white on a dark background. It would help the somewhat visually impaired student.
