I've tried making a few more paracord neck lanyards and I'm starting to get the hang of them. If you want a nice professionally made one, check out Widgnwhackers custom made lanyards.
Here's a couple Auburn Tiger flavored neck lanyards I made for some 'War Eagle' nuts in the family. One in the diamond braid and the other my first attempt at the 5-strand plait. The Book of Decorative Knots by Peter Owen has some great diagrams on 'how to' tie various decorative knots.
