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)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Fold your cord so that one end is 12" longer than the other.
Bring the other end of this large loop to form 2 loops. These loops will be larger than the loops in the finished knot.
Put a dowel over the center of the loops.
Bring the two ends over the dowel.
Bring the top loop (call it A) over these two ends.
Bring the remaining loop over A and under the bights formed in step 4.
Tighten the knot
Turn the knot over and bring the right hand loop to the left as shown.
Bring the legs down across this loop.
Bring the last loop over the legs and under the bights as shown. Tighten the knot.
Take the longer leg and form the top loop of the lanyard.
Wrap this end around the loop and the shorter leg two or more times
Bring the end through the middle of these turns and tighten. The knot is complete. Trim them ends
