A couple of folks had asked me last year if I could make a paracord version of the ‡ Cross of Lorraine, after I'd blogged about learning to make a regular paracord cross. I figured out a way to do it and here's my second attempt used as a pocket knife fob.
With my first attempt, I couldn't remember if the longer cross arms went above or below the shorter ones, so I just guessed without looking it up, and of course I messed up and made the first one backwards...
The correct way(20th century version) is with the short arms on top, long underneath, like a Patriarchal cross. Although the ancient Cross of Lorraine version had the arms the same length. There are also other variations according to the Wikipedia entry.
The top and bottom sinnets of the cross are made the same as the regular
paracord cross. Then I took four more strands of paracord and tied a
crown sinnet near the center of those strands, using four from one end
with the four from the top part of the cross to make the short arms, and
then the other four strands from the center section to make the lower
longer arms with the bottom of the crosses four strands.
