Practical and fashionable, these Survival Bracelets are the hottest accessory to sport. Many paracord tutorials are intricate and detailed, but this version is easy to crochet. Enjoy this free crochet pattern and make one for yourself and a friend. These survival bracelets are crocheted using paracord, which means you can actually unwrap them if you find yourself in an emergency situation. Paracord bracelets can be used as a tourniquet, splint, shoelaces, belts, and fishing line. Paracod can even be used to help make a fire.

When choosing a survival bracelet pattern or even one that is premade for you already, it is important to remember that these are not just a fashion accessory but, they are an actual life-saving tool. Always look to make sure that your bracelet can be unwrapped and used if you are ever in a situation that needs it. This one is perfect.

My Army vet son originally turned me on to these bracelets. The design he gave me was a macram version, and the point was to use enough paracord (10-15 ft) that it would be unraveled for use in an emergency. These crocheted versions are more lookalike and dont have nearly enough cord. It might be okay for kids, but dont count on it for a real emergency.

Too bad this post doesnt have a picture of the bracelets. Not sure what happened, but there are a lot of posts now that require me to actually click the link to get the pattern just to see the picture then decide whether I actually want to make the item and print the pattern out.

These fit right in with the friendship bracelet craze in our area and yet are so practical!!! I hadn't even thought of the emergency aspect of these and yet it makes perfect sense. These are very bright and colorful. I guess you could unravel it to make a fire too! It would be a fun way to teach young people how to crochet.

These are very quick to make and are a great asset when you spend a lot of time outdoors. My son spends a lot of time hiking and camping. I like to make these up for him to take with him. A few dollars and a few minutes of your time can go a long way, maybe even save a life. These make great gifts or craft table items!

I like the reason Para cord bracelets are made so that you always have cord on you that can be used in an emergency situation. And, of course, anything practical that you can crochet is on my To Do list! You do have to scroll down through many advertisements to get to the end of the pattern, but just keep going.

I have tried in the past to make Para cord bracelets the tradition way of weaving them macram style and they are very difficult to work with and require quite a bit of strength in order to make them tight and neat. Your crochet pattern makes it so much easier to do.

My grandson just asked me if I knew how to do this, and of course, I don't want to let him down. Thanks for the tutorial so I can make him one, and hopefully show him! Off to practice now...

I need to make a few more of these. Great to make for freebies at rummage sales, etc.

Unable to bring up the pattern.

Looks good. With three boys, I gotta try it! Thanks.

I was able to bring up the pattern, but some advertising covers text in the pattern; so I might as well not even attempt it. Can something be done to clear up the printable? Thanks!

I just copied and saved the pattern so the problem is fixed. If you still have the same problem you may need a different browser. I'm using the latest Internet Explorer.

right click on page and save as HTML only..and then print out pattern from your hard drive.

unable to bring up this pattern very disappointed

First, the survival bracelet is very cool but I had no idea how it could be called a survival tool until I googled it. Apparently it's a great way to carry 14 ft. of cord with you when hiking or whatever. (In an emergency, you can use paracord for lashings, tourniquets, shoelaces, snares, tying splints, or, if you tease out the threads, even fishing lines and sewing ... ) I'll be making some for my hiking son. Thanks.
