Six Lead Five Bight Turk's Head Knot
I made this six lead five bight Turk's Head knot with paracord, over a 3/4" ball bearing. I first made it around the body of an AA Maglite flashlight, and it looked ok, but I'd prefer a more elongated Turk's Head to go over the flashlight body and will try that at another time, eventually. I followed the directions from 'Creative Ropecraft' by Stuart Grainger. Here's an online link with a preview of the book and it just happens to have the directions for this knot if you scroll down on that page for them.
I tried another one with black and neon green paracord with a 1.125" ball bearing for the core.
