I wanted to make a lanyard to keep my "Every Day Carry" stuff handy.
Here you see the finished project...
You can see more of my projects at Knotty Pirate.
Step 1: The Lanyard Knot
I started with a Lanyard Knot on a loop.
The Lanyard Knot is a very simple knot to tie and adds a little bit of decorative flair to the lanyard.
Step 2: Add the Snake Knot
Then begin to tie the Snake Knot.
You will continue to tie the Snake Knot until you reach the desired length.
TIP: I always use forceps when tying the Snake Knot. It just makes things a bit easier.
Step 3: Make a Loop and Another Lanyard Knot
Now give yourself a couple of inches to make a loop. This loop will be used to attach to the carabiner.
Now tie another Lanyard Knot.
Carefully cut off the remaining ends and melt to prevent from fraying.
Step 4: Attach to the Caribiner
Attach the lanyard to the caribiner by feeding the bottom loop through the loop you just made. Then pull tight.
Step 5: Add Your Every Day Carry Items
Lastly I add my "Every Day Carry" stuff...
