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

    • Hey Roslyn!

      Thank you for contacting me, I did not see your messages.
      The cord you will need depends on your wrist size but it should be about the same as the cobra knot bracelet, so a bit under a foot per inch of the bracelet.


  2. Hey I was just wondering that the knot at the very end is and if a celtic button knot will suffice?
