The cobra knot is a very easy tie to learn. Your first step is to gather two different paracords to make the knot.

Materials you need are:

  1. A sharp knife
  2. A buckle
  3. Cigarette lighter
  4. 2 different colors paracord

Here are the simple instructions:

  • Take both strings in your hand and hold them straight with your fingers alongside each other.
  • Take hold of the left cord with your hand and see that you form it into a loop.
  • Then place the remaining cord behind both main strings.
  • Make sure the right string is placed underneath the left string and then over the left string’s loop.
  • Then it is now your job to make the knot tight.

Knot 2: The Lanyard Knot

To tie the lanyard knot, all you will need is a single paracord with a length of your choice. This knot can be a bit complicated, especially for a beginner, but by following the instructions you are bound to get a great finish.

Material needed:

  1. Paracord

Follow the instructions below and you are good to go:

  • First bend the paracord so that your two middle fingers can hold in the loop end.
  • Make another loop at the right end and make sure it goes over the left end as you place it in your palm.
  • Hold the left end, push it underneath the right end and then feed it through the loop resting in your hand-palm, while seeing to it that the string reaches over the loop as well as running underneath it. When this process is completed, your knot is supposed to look like the figure eight with a nice looking diamond shape lying in the center of your palm.
  • After completing the three steps above, you must then take hold of each end and move them along counter clockwise around so they can go through the diamond shape in the palm of your hand.

Start tightening your knots so they do not appear loose. If the knot looks a bit out of shape, you can easily use your fingers to straighten it.

Knot 3: The King Cobra Knot

In the snake world, the king cobra is a very special cobra. Tying the knot is almost the same as doing a normal cobra knot. Therefore, to get another result from the cobra knot, all you have to do is a simple weave of another cobra knot over top of the old one.

For a better look, you can use a different color than what you use when doing the cobra knot.

Materials needed are:

  1. Scissors or knife
  2. Lighter
  3. Buckle
  4. Paracord

Knot 4: The Snake knot

You might find it a challenging task doing this knot, but the end result will make it all worth it. For a more beautiful looking bracelet it is best to use two different colors of paracords. See how paracord bracelets can help you survive in the wild by reading internet articles on this topic.

Materials needed are:

  1. Sharp knife or scissors
  2. Cigarette lighter
  3. Paracord

Here are the instructions:

  • If you decide to use two different paracord colors, melt both ends, connect them together and then bend the area at the place where you are melting. If your choice is to use only a single paracord all you have to do is just to bend it in half.
  • Create an original loop in place so that you can join the two ends of your paracord bracelet. Form a knot and tie the loop very tight with it.
  • Loosen the base knot from the first loop a bit then push the opposite string through it. When this is done, make sure to tighten the knot again.
  • If you should turn the paracord over, you will notice that you have two loops at one end and at the other end is a single loop. Loosen only one loop and then pull through the string at the opposite end.
  • Turn the bracelet on the other side and continue the same weaving process.

Knot 5: The Monkey Fist Knot

This type of knot is difficult to tie, especially for a beginner. However, if you want to have a go at it then you are free to do so. It will look great as a bracelet on your hand, but most people wear it because they can defend themselves with it.

Hitting an attacker with it will give him a very painful experience and therefore, this bracelet with the monkey fist knot can be your best friend when things get rough between you and an attacker. For better self defense purpose, you can use a heavier ball if you like.

It takes three sets of wraps to get you reaching your target of having a paracord monkey fist bracelet.

Materials needed are:

  1. A heavy ball that is small in size (example, golf ball, or any heavy 1 inch ball).
  2. A needle to carry out weaving just in case
  3. Scissors or sharp knife
  4. Lighter
  5. Paracord
  6. Glue
  7. A jig

Instructions for you to closely follow:

  • First, use the paracord to make a vertical wrap around the ball.
  • Do it horizontally and then vertically again, but this time make sure to wrap the cord directly around the core underneath the last vertical wrap you did. Avoid making unequal passes on the sides. All sides are supposed to have the same equal sides.
  • Later on after tying your knot you will have to complete the process by tightening it. To tighten the knot, locate each knot and pull the slack tighter. You have to pull the slack on all sides to get the bracelet tight. Once you tighten all six sides your monkey fist bracelet is ready for you to wear.
