Key fobs are one of my favourite things to make. They are useful and there are a few different 'twists' I can introduce to them. (Pun definitely intended)
Typically I make them either to hang off a belt, or to put in a bag or m/purse. If you plan on having one made to go in a bag, you can choose to either leave it loose, or hang from a clip or hook (if one is available).
Again, with paracord, there are countless colours and patterns to choose from, as well as a few solid colours. I can also use a straight polyester cord that is not paracord, but a braided one.
A Crown knot then Wall knot starts the fob around the ring, followed by addtional Crown knots around the core. Finished with a Wall and Crown knot.
The profile is round because the braiding was done in the same direction (clockwise in this case, but could have been counter-clockwise).
When each knot is done alternately (clockwise, then counter-clockwise), the profile becomes square.
