Step 1: Getting Started
Materials: Para cord (any color), Crochet Hook size N/9.00mm
CH = Chain
SC = Single Crochet
Gauge: 3” = 5 single crochet
Step 2: Creating Your Survival Bracelet
Leave about a 6” tail of Para cord for finishing.
CH 18, for a 9” bracelet. (Other bracelet sizes: 14ch = 7”, 20ch = 10”).
Row 1: SC in third ch from hook, sc across to the end. (16 sc) Finish off. Leave about 6” of tail for finishing.
To finish, take both tails together and tie a nice bulky knot close to the end. Trim the tails, leaving about 1 – 2 inches from the knot. Burn/singe each end of the tails to keep the Para cord from unraveling and to give your bracelet a finished look.
Step 3: Final Thoughts
To wear, poke the knot through the extra ch space at the opposite end and it acts as a clasp for your bracelet.
7" bracelet = 8ft of Para cord approx.
9” bracelet = 10ft of Para cord approx.
10” bracelet = 11-12ft of Para cord approx.
Para cord can be found at some Army surplus stores, Outdoor Recreation/Camping Gear stores, and many places online. The Army surplus and Outdoor Gear stores mostly carry black or dark green colors. However, I have purchased some fun colors from online sources at very reasonable prices, (usually in bulk for the best
price per foot.) Try crocheting some in team colors, neon colors, and my personal favorite: pink!
