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.
Paracord- I used four 4 ft strands, but had roughly 20 inches left over, so I suggest using four 3 ft strands instead.
Needle nose pliers
Tape measure or Ruler
[Not Necessary] Key Ring (or whatever you want to use to hang or clip the cross onto)
Step 1: Step 1
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.
