Project Instructions

  • 1
    Take your three colors of paracord, then measure and cut them to be 6 foot in length.
  • 2
    Take your first color and feed it through the key ring, as well as the shank (or loop) on the back of the button, making sure the button is upside down. Put the key ring and button in the center of My Lanyard Maker then put the paracord in slots 4A and 5C. Take your other two paracord strands and feed them under your first paracord strand, putting them in slots 4D and 5B, and 5D and 4B.
  • 3
    Wrap strand from 5C to 4C, securing the end in 5A. Wrap strand from 4A to 3A, securing the end in 6C.
  • 4
    Remove strand from 4D and feed the end of the strand over the first two strands and under the third, putting it in the 5B slot. Take the strand that was previously in the 5B slot and do the same, putting it in the 4D slot. Do the same with the strand in 5D and 4B.
  • 5
    Release the loops from 4C/5C and 3A/4A and pull the ends tightly on all three strands. You have now made one rotation of the pattern.
  • 6
    Place first strand back in slots 4A and 5C and follow steps 3-5 until you have reached the desired length of your key chain.
  • 7
    Once you have reached your desired length, tie a knot with all of your strands. Cut strands an inch or two below the knot, leaving it tassel-like.
