1. Choose 2 round plastic laces and remove the S hook from the drawer of your My Lanyard Maker. (The example uses the colors Lime Green & Hot Pink).
2. Insert your S hook into the space provided on the end of your MyLM. Be sure to slide the peg all the way into its holding place so it is flush with the end of your MyLM. To follow the directions below, place the hook into the end that has the B number/letter combinations.
3. The Lime Green lace will need to be cut to 24 inches and the Hot Pink lace will be used at it’s full length. Place your laces together, end to end, fold them in half using the Lime Green lace length as your ½ way mark. Make a knot about a ½ inch from the loop. Be sure your knot is big enough to fit onto your S hook.
4. Separate your laces by placing your Lime Green laces in slots 3D & 6D. You can wrap the ends of these laces around the slots next to them to help keep them secure because they will not be moving for this particular pattern. Place your shorter Hot Pink lace into 4D and wrap it around the slot next to it. This will set up your laces to begin your pattern.
5. To begin, make sure your long Hot Pink strand is loose on your right hand side and underneath the Lime Green lace in 6D.
6. Take your long Hot Pink lace and feed it over top of 6D, underneath 4D and on top of 3D. Pull your plastic lace tight.
7. Now take your Hot Pink lace and wrap it around 3D (Lime Green), from left to right. Pull the end of the lace up through the middle of 3D & 4D. Take the same end and go over top of 4D (Hot Pink), and underneath 6D (Lime Green). Pull your lace tight. The end of your lace should now be on your right hand side.
8. Repeat steps 6 – 7 until your lanyard is the desired length. To finish, simply tie an overhand knot at the end of your lanyard and then add in some beads for more fun flair!
