I followed this tutorial (originally shared through the IGKT France site, but the links changed) to try tying a 45 face globe knot, with 1.4mm nylon cord.
I first tied it around a magic marker, making 3 passes, then slid it off and gradually tightened it around a 3/4" wooden ball. It's attached to my Victorinox Tinker with a multiple overhand sliding knot/scaffold knot, for use as a lanyard/fob.
The few globe knots(variations of turks head knots) that I've tried tying, can be tied in hand with a bit of patience. For those with some knot experience that want to try more elaborate globe knots, you might check out the Globe Knot Cookbook Kit at knottool.com.
And another one tied with paracord, with a 1.25" foam ball core, used as a key ring fob...
And a YouTube video showing how to tie the multiple overhand sliding knot/scaffold knot, for attachment.
