Keychain lanyards made with the king cobra stitch/doubled Solomon bar/doubled Portuguese sinnet, lanyard knots, and a couple of cobra twist stitch/twisted Solomon bar/twisted Portuguese sinnet key fob/lanyards.

They have about 10 feet of paracord used in each one. The twists ones have about 5 to 6 feet in each.

And a fob, using olive drab and black 550 paracord, with a Schmuckatelli pewter skull bead, for a pocket knife with a bail, or larger sized lanyard hole, since the paracord inner strands are intact instead of gutted on this one.

Do you sale any of your work? A lot of it looks amazing.

I don't make them to sell anymore. There are some others that do though on some of the forums, like EDC Forums. Just search the forums for lanyards or paracord and you'll likely find some in the for sale threads.

OK, I'm just a beginning novice at this kind of stuff, but I'm still wondering how you got three lanyard knots at the end of these keychains.

On a side note, I loved your tutorial on the lanyard project, I've already made several for family and friends.

Thanks a ton for giving me something to do in my spare time.

The lanyard knot is made with two strands, so as long as you have enough cord, you can make as many in a row as you like. You can work the slack between the knots out after you make each one, so they're right next to each other or leave them spaced apart.

I really like the twisted paracord lanyards. How do you make them?

Stormdrane said...

The twists are just a series of half hitches(also called a Chinese staircase). Take a six foot length of cord, find the center, measure about 6 inches down, start tying half hitches with the two ends around the two center cords back towards the center end loop. Tighten the half hitches after every two or three you make by pushing them up towards the end where you started making them. Also the center cords want to twist as you make the half hitches, so twist them back a bit with your fingers after you tighten each time.

This is really one of the simplest things to make, you'll see after you get the hang of it.

I thought that it was a twisted Portuguese sennit. Thanks.
