I've seen an instructable for this before, but now I can't find it. So I decided to make another. This is the first time I've attempted to make one, and I'm pleased with myself. I did watch 'How to Make a Paracord Cross (Necklace) by TIAT' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTHk7fFkaX0) prior to making this. 

This makes a 3 1/2 inch cross that can be added to a key chain or lanyard, clipped to a backpack, hung in a rear view mirror, and so on.


Materials

Paracord- I used four 4 ft strands, but had roughly 20 inches left over, so I suggest using four 3 ft strands instead.
Scissors
Needle nose pliers
Tape measure or Ruler
Lighter

[Not Necessary] Key Ring (or whatever you want to use to hang or clip the cross onto)

Fold two of the cords in half. This is where you are going to start braiding one of the arms of the cross. Lay them out like a cross, overlapping at that spot.
