Valentine paracord knot | Tutorial

In this photo tutorial, you will see how to make Silke Engels' knot "Valentine". You use 5 paracord ropes for this knot and you can choose whether to make the knot with or without beads.

What the knotting looks like after you have tied the knot about 8 times

This pretty knot by Silke Engels is about 1.4 cm thick and 3.3 cm wide when you use paracord type 3 rope for knotting.

In the MatchMaker, you can combine the colours and calculate the required lengths for your project.

You can add beads to this knot, but you can also make it without beads. Do you choose the version of the Valentine without beads? Then you won't need the micro cord.

You start this knot with the Kosmetik 2.0, then add the other colours to the set-up.


All colours added to the set-up with number indication to refer to each rope

Colour 1: Rose Pink & Burgundy Diamonds, colour 2: Viva la Vino Red, colour 3: Cream, colour 4: Sparkly Rose, colour 5: Pastel Pink and colour 6: Viva la Vino Red (micro cord).

Step 1 and 2 of making the valentine knot with all the ropes added

Steps 3 and 4 of making the Valentine knot with paracord rope

Finishing and tightening the first knot in steps 5 and 6

Before tightening the knot, make sure the two micro cord strands (colour 6) go to the back. In step 7, you can see how this then looks at the back.

Micro cord to the back and add the first bead in steps 7 and 8 of making the valentine knot

Are you making the version without beads? Then just leave out the bead and micro cord in these steps.

Step 9 and 10 Continue the knot after threading the first bead on the micro cord

Three of the colours 2, 3, 4 and 5 will go around the strands of colour 1 and one goes to the side. Make sure you always let the innermost colour go to the side, like colour 3 in step 10.

Step 11 and 12 pass the other strings around the ropes in the middle as well

Step 13 and 14 tighten the second knot and start the third knot with the bead

How all the ropes should be for the next knot and what that looks like after tightening it

In step 15, you again let the innermost colour (in this case, colour 4) go to the side. By consistently doing this with the innermost colour, the colours keep shifting places and you create this alternating pattern.

In steps 17 and 18 you can see again how to tie the paracord valentine knot

This knot is designed by Silke Engels. We would like to thank her for allowing us to use this knot.
