Type I paracord/accessory cord spool knit neck lanyard...


I just finished making this OD Green 'Type I' paracord spool knit neck lanyard with a swivel clip. I made this one for my dad and he said he'd use it with his cell phone when he's out and about.

*The swivel clip on the lanyard in my photo was purchased from Lighthound, which is no longer in business, but might be found from other vendors somewhere in the interwebs.... ;)

I love your Type 1 braided yanyard - please can you tell me how to make one. I can manage the braiding and then the snake braid section but then end up with two loose ends - so how did you fasten the clip??
Thanks

After making the braid, I take the two ends and loop them around the swivel clip a couple of times. Then I do the snake knot with those two ends in the center of the snake knot core.

Why didn't I think of that?!
Nice work!

could you please post the link to making this braid?

@Russell, That's a three peg spool knit lanyard in the blog post, a tighter pattern than what I usually prefer, but that'll depend on how you space your pegs/nails on your own spool. I think they were around 1/2" to 3/4" apart thereabouts with the Type I cord.

Here's a recent YouTube video I put up for a two-peg spool knit, and the older one with a brief demo of a three peg pattern.
