Are you sure you mean make or purchase? If you are climping the cables yourself. The correct pin outs are normally found with information that came with the climping tool, or can be found at:

In addition, you will need a hub or a special "cross over cable" if just linking two machines without a hub.

I was going to answer this, but the comment answers the question accurately.  However, I would suggest that you buy the cable as it will reduce the overall cost of making the cable.  I.e.  A crimping tool may run anywhere from $15 - $200 depending on the quality of the tool...etc.  Also, if you are not buying large quantity of cable you will pay more per foot than normal.  You will also need the RJ45 connectors for the ends of the cable.  These are not easily found in single packs.  Overall, if your just connecting 2 computers a $20 "X" cable or Cross over cable (as referenced above in comments) will supply you with enough to complete a full Peer-to-Peer network cabling job.  If you are doing more than 2 machines you will require a Hub that matches your network card speed/type.  You will also need individual "Straight" or "Patch" cables per computer which run about the same price as an "X" cable and your basically buying these cables by the foot and "Category".  Linksys has a good Web Site that explaines much about specifications, wire maps, network card information, etc.  This can be found at http://www.linksys.com
