Introduction: Paracord ID Badge Lanyard

For those wanting something a little different then the run of the mill trade-show ID lanyards.
This is a very simple project, matter of fact it was my first paracord project..

Inspired by Stromdrane , TyingItAllTogether and countless other paracord weavers out there.

Step 1: Supplies Needed

To complete this project you will need the following supplies;
1 - Scissors or Knife (to cut the Paracord)
1 - Lighter(torch style) or Wood Burning tool (to melt the cut ends of the Paracord)
1 - 1" (2.54cm) 'Snap Ring' aka Key Ring
1 - 1-1/2" (3.81cm)Lobster Claw swivel (you can use any size clasp, I've found that 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" look the best)
*If you chose to do a single cord lanyard pick which ever works for you. OR you can use 2x of each, what ever makes you happy

5'06"' (1.676m)of Paracord for the main body of the ID Lanyard
8" (20.32cm) of Paracord for the 'comfort strap' bar You can use a longer length if you intend to remove it.
7' (2.1336m)of Paracord for the 'comfort strap' braid, this will yield about a 6-1/2" braid(depending on how tight you tie)

Basic knowledge of knot tying, you will be using the following knots.
Hangman's knot
Cobra Stitch also called a Solomon bar, square knotting, or a Portuguese sinnet.
Double overhand knot or a knot of your choice to secure the keyring/snap

Step 2: Create the Hangman's Knot

Create a hangman's knot.

Step 3: Finish the 'ends'

I chose to have 2 'ends' to my ID lanyard. Yes I carry a lot of crap on my ID lanyard.
The 'knot' end is attached to the 'Snap Ring' aka keyring (this end is optional and could be tucked properly into the wrappings)
The lobster claw end is attached to the 'rope' end (this is the part that  you can pull to adjust  the fit)
The knot you chose to secure the attachments is up to you..

Step 4: Make the 'Comfort Strap'

I know I don't like the feeling of the cord cutting into my neck and I'm sure you  wouldn't either. 
The solution was simple, add a 'comfort strap' or band to the project.
I chose to do this braid in the same color as the rest of the project, however you can do it in any color you want or even bi-color !

Step 5: The Finished Product

Here it is! Both single and double ended.
