Good Luck Knot Lanyard

I lanyard uses the arms of the good luck knot to make the loops of the lanyard.

I used a 42" length of 1/4" cotton cord to make the large lanyard.

I used a shoelace of the same size in the tutorial

I used proportionally shorter cord to male smaller (can also be used as zipper pull)
