In this instructable I will show a few easy steps on how to make a 5 color key fob using paracord.
For this project you will need:
* 5 - different paracord colors or the same, you decide.
* Scissors
* Lighter
* plastic clip or rubber band.

Everyone is welcome to have a look at my blog where I have a few more guides:

Step 1: Choose your colors

After choosing your colors I would recommend fusing all cord ends before starting, this will prevent the inner strings popping out and will be easier when making the knots. 

Take one more cord and tie a simple knot at the end that will act as the center cord. Add a few inches extra for creating some decorative end.
Could you please e-mail me a printed copy of the directions for the 5 color key fob, I cannot print them from the download my computer is not letting me and it is telling me my firewall is a problem, I have disabled the firewall and it still will not download. TBlanchette@NEW.RR.COM. Thanks
By the way, exactly how much cordage did you use? <br>-BLUEBLOBS2

nice and clear 'ible, i might wrap my knife with this! thanks!<br>
awesome braid. i'm going to have to try this one. thanks for sharing.
I would like to just add that you might want to take the strands out from the inside or you will have have fat lines that dont lay down and always look sharp if you dont. Like I have been doing on my first one here. will send photo in a bit when done. Other than that very very good job on teaching us how to do it <br><br>
I have one that uses 3x 4 strand twisted and stacked a total of 12 strands but only 4 are used at one given time.
Nice and clear 'ible. Tried it but with 6 strands and using different lengths. Turned out to get a nice bottle shape as the two shorter ones ran out.
Job Well Done... Gonna try this one later ;)
If you use only two strands, it makes a &quot;dna&quot; shaped key fob.&nbsp; i tried it after seeing it on your site<br />
AWESOME!!!!!!!! But what is the name of the knot? Please reply.<br /> &nbsp;Cheers and thanks,<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Neil
Thank you, The name is Crown knot.

Cool thanks, if you&nbsp;make one&nbsp;post an image.
Very cool! Thanks a lot!&nbsp;
