Step 1: Supplies
small pocket knife (I used a small swiss army knife that contains a small knife, scissors, file, tweezers and toothpick)
Fishing Line (I used about 10 feet)
Strike anywhere match
Sandwich Bag (not shown in photo)
Rope of your choice (Depending on the size of the knife you use length will vary. I used about 15ft, but had a lot of excess. about 6 ft would have been fine.)
Key Ring (not shown)
2nd knife or scissors (for trimming excess rope)
Lighter (to burn rope ends)
Step 2: Step 1
Step 3: Step 2
Step 4: Step 3
Find the center of your rope by folding it in half. take the center and insert it through the small keyring on the knife. Then feed the loose ends through the loop of rope just created. Pull the loose ends until the knot is tight.
Step 5: Step 4
Choose a front and back of your key chain, then choose an end of rope to be the front piece and an end to be the back piece. The first few knots are a little awkward to get started.
Hold the back rope to the back so that a loop forms. Feed the front rope through the loop. pull the front rope through, but leave slack so that a loop is formed by the front rope on the opposite side. Feed the end of the back rope through this loop created by the front rope. Pull tight so that the knot stays on the knife.
Repeat this knot down the knife. be sure to keep the knots tight, and be careful not to undo the fishing line as the knots cross over.
Step 6: Step 5
This step could be repeated multiple times to get more rope on the key chain. I chose to stop after going back up.
Be sure to keep all your knots tight!
