My hobby with decorative and useful knot work.
Hey man you have some sweet stuff herei really want to try some weaving outwhere do you get your paracord from?thank you
My usual paracord source is supplycaptain.comThe cord I used for the lanyard in this particular blog post is 2mm braided nylon trot line from ebay.
Howdy Stormdrane,Hope this finds you warm LOL.When you make your loops how did you secure them?Figure I will give it a try.Really glad to see Flikr back up.Thanks Scot
@Scot, One loop end is where the lanyard is started, with tying a four strand round braid, all eight ends brought together forming the loop, and then to tie the eight strand braid for length desired.I don't recall what method I used at the other end, but there are at least a couple of ways to form the other loop end, with one being tie a loose lanyard knot with four of the strands around the others, then tie another four strand braid to make the loop.Then those four strands are tied in another lanyard knot back around the braid,closing the loop, and trimming all the ends. Turk's head knots wcan then be tied over each of the ends.That's just one way to do it, and I just remember I did a lot of tying/untying with that one, but not any specifics...
