Introduction: Every Day Carry Lanyard

I wanted to make a lanyard to keep my "Every Day Carry" stuff handy.

Here you see the finished project...

You can see more of my projects at Knotty Pirate.

Step 1: The Lanyard Knot

I started with a Lanyard Knot on a loop.

The Lanyard Knot is a very simple knot to tie and adds a little bit of decorative flair to the lanyard.

Step 2: Add the Snake Knot

Then begin to tie the Snake Knot.

You will continue to tie the Snake Knot until you reach the desired length.

TIP: I always use forceps when tying the Snake Knot. It just makes things a bit easier.

Step 3: Make a Loop and Another Lanyard Knot

Now give yourself a couple of inches to make a loop. This loop will be used to attach to the carabiner.

Now tie another Lanyard Knot.

Carefully cut off the remaining ends and melt to prevent from fraying.

Step 4: Attach to the Caribiner

Attach the lanyard to the caribiner by feeding the bottom loop through the loop you just made. Then pull tight.

Step 5: Add Your Every Day Carry Items

Lastly I add my "Every Day Carry" stuff...

I did include links on how to tie the knots in my instructions. The links have better instructions than I could make... Hope that helps :)
