Azulejo Endless Falls Paracord Key Fob

In this tutorial presented by Tying It All Together (TIAT), we discover how to make the Azulejo Endless Falls Paracord Key Fob. This 6” azulejo endless falls paracord key fob takes on the distinctive look of Portuguese and Spanish painted ceramic tile work, and can be made with either SurvivorCord or WarriorCord.

To make the azulejo endless falls paracord key fob you will need three 4’ lengths of paracord of three different colors. For this particular bracelet we will be using red, olive green, and bright green. You will also need a lighter.

Begin by taking the red and bright green cords together with the bright green cord above the red cord. Starting at the center of the cords, bring the red cord into a ½” loop over the top of the center of the bright green cord. Next, bring the left working side of the bright green cord over the top of the loop to the right. Then bring the right working side of the bright green cord over the loop and the other working end of the green cord, creating an “x” over the base of the loop.

Bring the two ends of the red cords together and through the center of the loop of the bright green cord that is around the red loop, not through the red loop. Pull the cord most of the way through but do not tight the work. Take the olive green cord and fold it in half and insert the folded part and the center of the cord through the bottom of the bright green loop.

Bring the loop of the olive green cord over the red loop and pull the work snug, while maintaining the ½” red loop at the top. The red loop should stay right where it is.

At this point all of the cords should be attached together with two red center cords, one olive green cord on each side of the red cords, and one bright green cord on each side of the olive green cord. The Azulejo endless falls design consists of a three step pattern.

Step 1. Start by flipping the piece over to the backside and twist the left red center cord over the left red center cord. The right red center cord should now be on the left and vice-versa. Then bring the right olive green working cord over the red working cord on the right. Now bring the left olive green working cord under the red working cord on the left, and over the right olive green working cord.

Step 2. While holding the work in place, flip the piece back over and take the left bright green working cord over the red and olive green cords that are currently on the left. Then bring the right bright green working cord over the left bright green working cord, creating an “x”. Next take the end of the red working cord on the right through the opening at the top right of the work created by the bright green and red cords, entering from the front.

Next, take the end of the olive green working cord that is on the right side and put it through the opening in the center of the work created by the red and olive greed cords on the right side. Without tightening the work and while holding everything securely in place, repeat the same process on the left side. Once complete pull the work tight and synch to the top.

Step 3. Now bring the left green working cord to the right over the red and olive green working cords. Then bring the right bright green working cords to the left over the left bright green and olive green working cords. Next bring the end of the right red working cord through the opening created by the bright green cord on the right, entering from the front. Repeat this process with the left red working cord.

Bring both ends of the olive green cords through the center opening of the bright green cords and the center of the two olive green cords, entering from the front. Pull the work tight and synch to the previous knot.

Repeat steps 1-3, adding more segments until you have reached your desired length. Be sure to leave a few inches to lock the work in place with a triangle tie off.

To make the triangle tie off, flip the work so that the bottom is now at the top. Take the right bright green working cord to the left, around the back of the four center cords. Then bring the right bright green working cord to the right over the top of the four center cords.

Next bring the bright green cord end that is on the right, around the front of the center cords, and over the bright green cord. Then put the end through the loop created by the bright green cord on the right entering from above. Bring the end of the other bright green cord that first crossed over the center cords, around the back of the center cords, and through the loop created by the bright green cord on the left, entering from above.  

Without tightening the work , bring the end of the bright green cord that is on the left side around the front of the center cords and then through the green loop that first wrapped the center cords, entering from the below on the backside. Lastly, flip the work over and repeat the same process with the other green working cord.

And there your have it. After a little bit of time and possible frustration, your Azulejo endless falls paracord key fob is now complete!
