This video tutorial will show how to tie a Two-Bight Turk's-Head lanyard using about 5.5 feet of 550 paracord. The Turk's Head part of the knot is described in 'The Ashley Book of Knots', knot #595. I added the lanyard knot and loop on the end to make it useful as a lanyard. The actual time it took me to make the lanyard, from start to finish, was under 20 minutes, but I edited the video down to 10 minutes. The time consuming parts are making additional passes and then tightening up and working the slack out of the knot. Knot responsibly.
A great site to visit, for those interested in knot work, is Knot Heads World Wide: http://www.khww.net *The website is gone, but there is an active KHWW Facebook group. *The Facebook group has been switched over to 'Private' by the admin this year(2015), so it is no longer publicly viewable, and I do not know if or when that might change or if any new members are being accepted. IGKT.net has knot info and forums for resources and learning.
