Is that a braid from one piece of leather? If so, it's called a mystery braid/trick braid. Here's a video how to:

Thanks Warrior, but I don't think that is quite it.

My googlefu escapes me on it.  It was one piece of lace ran through the lanyard hole and some how the "two" ends are braided.

Not sure then, unless it's something like a Single Braid Eye Splice: http://www.bethandevans.com/pdf/Brumel.pdf

Unless someone figures something else.  I would have to say that that is it.

Thanks for your help.

I believe it is called the bleeding heart braid. I am having a hard time trying to find instructions via google to tie it. the weave is a series of cuts in the leather and you weave the opposing end through the cut and then repeat going the other way.
