The Two Color Paracord Solomon Bar is the same knot used in making the Survival Bracelet. We are just going to add a little different twist to the popular bracelet. We will make it with two colors.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Layout
Start with your two colors of paracord, lay them out as shown. One color on the left and the second color on the right.
Step 2: Begin Your Knot
Take your left cord, make a loop with the running or working end of the paracord, going in front of the knot. Take your right cord, loop around the the left cord running or working end, go behind the knot and through the loop of the left cord.
*** you can start the knot on a buckle or key ring if you want to, I am just showing how the two colors will look... ***
Step 3: Pull Tight
Once you pull the knot tight you should start to see the familiar knot pattern of the Survival Bracelet.
Step 4: Continue Tying the Knots
Continue tying the knots
Step 5: After a Few More Knots
By now you can see the Solomon Bar forming... In the example you can see the RED cord is forming the edges of the Solomon Bar... But what if you wanted the BLACK color to be on the edge...????
Step 6: The Big Surprise...
If you turn your work over you will see the colors are reversed...
You can use this knot to make Survival Bracelets, or key chains, or what ever you like...
