i even used the scraps to make a smaller one

And consiquentially, if you flop the side your not is falling on every pass, you will make a braid that goes straight.

but of course, the spiral is always more awesome.
If you splice 2 different colors together and use that as the yellow chord it comes out pretty cool. Just tie the knot at the splice when you start and you will have 2 colors mixing as you go. I made one with half green and half tan that came out nice.

@NaaF thank you but when you burn the red ropes you press it into the gold rope while its still molten plastic. that sticks together and the all one string is a great idea

I got the colored rope at a army navy surplus store,

Great instructable. I just tried this out with my shoelace and it can be done with single peace of rope. Using just one piece of rope is better cause it can't fall apart at the end. It can be done if you tie a knot at the end of your red string and then make double helix back over itself until you reach the ring and make a final knot. You would need longer red string. Hope my description is clear =)

Can you be more specific? What about the length of the "Red" inside rope? Otherwise wouldn't you end up too short, or too long? (or am I missing something here?)
swim_guy5150 (author)  kariswg16 years ago
I'm so sorry, the inside red rope i used 1 foot or so and it was plenty. Or you could just think of the length you would like your keychain to be and double it and add 3 inches for the girth hitch. The gold outside rope I used about 6 1/2 feet and i had plenty.
swim_guy5150 (author) 6 years ago
About 6 feet will work

Very cool! Could you please add a specific measurement instead of "1 1/4 arms length", since not everyone has the same size arms.
