How to braid a lanyard cord

To make a DIY lanyard, you’ll need a length of paracord approximately twice as long as you’d like it to be. Start by doubling the length of the cord, preferably on a sturdy nail. This will form the core of the lanyard. The remaining 90 feet of cord should be positioned behind the core, with the ends secured with rubber bands. Use square knots to tie around the core. Be sure to bring the right knot to the left side of the core strands. After you’ve finished braiding the cord, you can begin attaching it to the carabiner.
