Step 1: What You'll Need
Paracord, ruler, lighter, knife
Step 2: The Key Fob
Start by taking 11 inches of paracord and fold it in half and melt the 2 ends together with the lighter.
Step 3: Starting the Cobra Knot
Place a long piece of paracord (about 3 feet of paracord) under the short looped piece then take the left side and put it over the looped piece and over the right piece of paracord. Then take the right side piece and put it over the looped piece and under the left piece. It should look like the picture.
Step 4: 1st Knot
Take the right piece and put it over the loop then take the left piece and put it over then under (the pictures explain it better).
Step 5: 2nd Knot
Do the same but in reverse for second knot (see pictures) then keep repeating knot 1 and 2 until you have complete the key fob.
Step 6: Finished
Once you've finished the knots melt the ends with the lighter and press them onto the paracord (be carefully as its hot). To one end of the key fob add a karabiner and add your keys on a keyring to the other then it's done. Any feedback or comments appreciated, thanks for reading.
