Box knot paracord keychain

In this tutorial I will show you how to make the most popular paracord keychain.

Called the box knot or the square knot keychain, this type of keychains not only have a great look, but are also fairly easy to make. The added benefit is that a fairly short keychain can hold enough paracord to be actually useful (for example for replacing shoelaces). I like making this type of keychains because they really look professionally made. I have yet to try a four color version, but it is fairly easy to simply join together cords of different colors and giving it a try.

For the project you will need the following items:

With those supplies in hand we can begin making our keychain. The knot we will be using is called the box knot.

In essence, all we will be doing is making box knot one on top of eachother. After the first or second knot we will pull out a loop we can use for the keyring.

A final piece of advice from me is to tighten the knots firmly. I pull of two cords at the same time when beginning the tightening, then each cord separately.
