    I've done several lanyards for various things. I'll see if I have any pictures. Basic square style.

    Here is some other stuff.

    Cobra knotted bracelet with another cobra knot over it.

    A lanyard for my water bottle so i can hook it to a caribiner on my backpack. I used a rope thimble and spool stitched around that with type 1 paracord then finished it off with a row of snake knots using type 3 paracord.

    If it wasn't made of paracord, I'd wave the :greddy: flag

    Could we take turns braiding it into each others hair? :rofl:

    I can do great things with 1/4 poly rope but thats more appropriate for FS than this forum :big grin:

    I usually don't wear the bracelets but i keep 1 in my backpack just in case. It's a good way to store about 12ft. of paracord. It came in handy my last overseas trip. I was on a 30 day deployment to africa and the airline lost all my luggage the first day. I had to wear the same clothes for 30 days. Everyday after work i would wash my clothes in the sink and hang dry them on a clothesline i made from the 12ft of paracord from the bracelet that I took apart. It worked great!

    You can get started on http://www.boondoggleman.com for basic shit.

    Once you get comfortable with that you can move on to more advanced shit.

    Check out

    http://stormdrane.blogspot.com/ This dude is fucking amazing.

    And this thread:
    http://edcforums.com/index.php?topic=4055.0 Their forums are weird though. For some reason they read from bottom to top? I don't get it.

    My I.D. badge lanyard. I know it's not safe because there is no "breakaway" connection. Theoretically if this got caught in something my head is going in with it. Unless i can resist 1100 lbs of force. haha

    Good looking stuff. We used to do projects like that in Boy Scouts back in the day. There's a guy that sells watch bands braided like that in different colors on Timezone.com.

    Monkey fists are fun. This one has a 1" marble inside.

    I have a similar wrap around both barrels on my M6 Survival. I never really thought about how handy all that cord could be in an actual survival situation :mamoru:
    Of course the chances of me have that particular gun with me were an actual survival situation to arise are slim to none :rofl:

    What I meant was, if the SHTF an O/U .22/.410 probably isn't the gun I would grab.

    BTW, I followed those instructions last night for the monkey fist and I now have a new zipper pull on the stock pack of my .308 :cool:
    Pic later, maybe.
