Paracord Sailor’s Knot Bracelet

I’m back with more paracord to show.

The Sailor’s Knot/Turk’s Head Bracelet!


This one is a bit different from the traditional paracord bracelet, seeing as it lacks the buckle and common cord braiding techniques, but it still manages to carry quite a bit of cord (about 8 feet is what I got in this one).

It is made of the knot commonly called a Turk’s Head that has been used on ships to mark the “King Spoke” on the ship’s wheel (when the king spoke is up, the rudder is straight).

You may notice that there is one green strand running through my bracelet. It wasn’t on purpose. I ran out of black cord. But it still looks cool, so if you want that effect, burn a small piece of different colored cord to the end of your main color.

The most common question I’ve gotten with this bracelet (though I don’t know why) is: “Does it come off?”

To answer anyone out there who might be wondering: Yes. It does come off.

On my wrist one way…





And on my wrist the other way.


*gasp* Look! It’s off!



The instructions I learned with are right here: DIY nautical turk’s head bracelet

And the paracord came from

And please comment! Tell me what you thought!

I’d love to see your bracelets if you make them. 🙂

Have a great day!

  1. It’s so pretty! That would be really cool in like a white and pink or something. But that’s just me, maybe it’s my inner girly girl speaking. 😉 Great job!

Any thoughts?
