Square lanyards are made by:
- Take two strands of contrasting colors. Consider the first strand A and the second likewise B.
- Take A, fold it in half and crimp it with your teeth, or mark it in a way that does not compromise the integrity of the strand at that point. The first half will be A1 and the second A2.
- Do the same with B.
- Make a loop halfway through A and place a hook in the loop, if desired.
- Thread B through the loop. Weave it through in such a way that it creates a loop within A, like so (* = color A, o = color B):
***o ***o*** <--- the “o” at this
o*** *o* point goes outward,
o like A does
- Fold over A1 and A2 and then fold over B1 and B2, weaving them through.
- Repeat until a couple inches are left.
- There are many ways to finish a lanyard, but the easiest is to grab all four strands and tie and overhand knot.
