I bought this green 1.4mm braided nylon trot line on ebay last month. It's a great color, but my fingers are green after working with it. A little too much dye I guess. A couple of rinses in the sink and I think most of the excess comes off the lanyard without fading the cord.
I made this lanyard over a length of black utility cord with lanyard knots/loops at each end and put the end of the green strands thru the center of the lanyard knot before tightening. I then made an overhand stopper knot to keep the green cord in place after finishing the lanyard knots. That's our Zippo lighter pictured, we use for the grill.
