    This lanyard consists entirely of two 10' strands of paracord with the exception of the small blue turks head just above the bottom knot. First, the two strands are doubled and the 4 strand round braid is made in a line to about 25". Then it is folded over and one of the four strands is forced through a bight in the end of the round braid, bringing them together to form the main neck loop resulting in 4 working strands (thanks kcardwell!). The 4 strands are used in the manrope knot; next is the all yellow knot around a core of the two blue strands (#790 "four-lead diamond knot" p. 142 of the Ashley Book of knots: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEAixlTHgWM)
    Finally, another manrope knot (how to in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyoLpz5IvtI)!
    This was a lot of work! The skull is cool, and quite large and heavy; I decided to do this lanyard with intact paracord strands. Yes, this results in a pretty substantial sized piece of work, but this skull piece justifies it IMO.

    When I opened the thread, all I could see was the very top of the picture. I thought - what a great lanyard for a Cub Scout (because of the colors) - then I got to the skull. Still cool, but may not fit with the Cub Scout theme.
