This keychain is made using square knots, which are also called “cobra knots”. These knots are the same as the ones used in the cobra knot paracord bracelet.

In fact this is a very similar project. It results in a nice looking paracord keychain that also holds a bit of paracord for emergency use.

You can make this keychain as large as you want. I’d say that 3 feet of paracord is more than enough for this project though.
