Hi Everyone, my apologies for not posting for some time now and not answering viewers questions. Thank you for all the kind comments they really motivate me to create new posts. I will do my best to start adding more paracord projects to this blog and I will combine my Paracord Projects with my other blog Flaming Furnace.

Paracord (square knot)

Square Paracord knot is ideal for key fob or to hold swipe cards, mobiles, zipper pull etc'.

I used it around my mobile strap and around a metal rod attached to my car key. - ie Rod could be used incase of an emergency to smash window.

In this guide I am showing the steps how to create the square knot.

Step 7- insert the inner cord into the first square knot and tight it around.

Step 13-cut and fuse 2 loose ends.

Step 14- create decorative knot or fuse it.

How many feet/inches would you use for this project? and I don't quite understand step one, how does the loop fit into the whole thing? Thanks for your help.

Hi, you can use as much paracord as you desire. Once you start its just making knot over knot until you are happy with the length. Try 25inces (per color) for first time.
In step one it is the core paracord the will be slided into the first set of knots (step 6) and after that all knots will be tight around it.
Hope this was helful ;-)

Can you tell me what the knot is and how to make it, that is in the end of the pink squareknot keychain? It looks like a diamond knot but where are the ends?

The orange/black keychain is just the same as I made on my website (paracordcentral.org. I think this is the most standard out of the paracord key fobs out there.
