You mean terminate 4-pair cat5 cable to an rj11 connector?

You can't. At least not with all on the conductors.

If you're just wanting to make a phone cable, just terminate them the same on each end. 1 to 1, 2 to 2, 3 to 3, etc.

What are you trying to connect with this cable?

Okay. Then just straight through will work. I think that to be "technically" correct, 1-2 are the first pair and 3-4 are the second, but for your application, it really doesn't matter.

Actually, phone lines are wired using RJ-11 pins 1-4 for line 2 and 2-3 for line 1, and they are rolled on the ends.
Pick any pair of wires and crimp them to pins 2-3 and reverse the order at the other end (white/blue, blue on one end, blue, white/blue at the other)
