How to Make a Duck Call Lanyard
Posted by Patrick on 1/9/2014 to Guest Articles

Patrick the Duck Commander

Today we are very excited to welcome guest blogger Patrick. Patrick is a 14-year-old Paracord crafter who can make anything from a gun sling to a survival grenade. Patrick has a terrific idea for your next Paracord project.

 

All you duck hunters out there, have you ever not had enough space to store your calls? Well now you can make a lanyard to put them on! 

Materials:
2 fifteen foot hanks of two different colors.
Matches or a lighter. 
Needle nose pliers. 
Scissors. 
12" ruler.

Cut two 10-11 foot hanks one of each color. Find the halfway mark of each and bend them over each other to make an X. 

Picture 1

Begin a weave called the round braid. You simply make a circle around one hank with the other.

It should look something like this after some time braiding.

When you have reached your desired length we need to end it. Look back to your first one and you should see the first braid. Use your pliers and open it up. Pass all four strings through and close it off with the cobra knot.

Next take one color and cut four 20 inch hanks. Pick four spots you would like your duck calls to be on your lanyard (you can have more) and use your pliers to open up a hole. Pass through one 20 inch hank through each hole and tie a simple double overhand knot.

Picture 8
Tie a small cobra knot of the opposite color on each hanging strand. Do it tight enough to where it will not slide loose. But loose enough to where it will
 still slide.

You are now complete
! Simply slide up your cobra knot and tighten it down on your call.
