This is a tutorial on a variation of one of the lanyards I've learned to make. It will allow you to carry 10 feet of paracord with you, using a couple of decorative knots for the lanyard, and having a loop on one end and a swivel clip, snap hook, keyring, carabiner, whatever you choose to use on the other end. You can vary the length and use more or less cord if desired.
You can get the basic idea of what's being done from my photos. You'll need to know how to tie a lanyard knot and a Solomon bar(also called a cobra stitch, square knotting, or a Portuguese sinnet, which are the same type commonly used for making a paracord bracelet) and the king cobra stitch(just overlapping the previous cobra stitch).
I've added a YouTube video, that I made, to this tutorial, showing how to make a lanyard knot with a loop.
