For this lanyard, I added a flamed titanium lanyard bead and tied "The Crown and Diamond", which is shown in 'The Ashley Book of Knots' as knot #784.
WhyKnot recently uploaded a tutorial for this knot on his YouTube channel, mentioning the diagram in Ashley's book is incorrect, as there are a few errors sprinkled throughout Ashley's book, some noted in this IGKT forums thread(International Guild of Knot Tyers).
I uploaded two photos showing both sides of the knot, which look the same. I finish the ends of the paracord by pulling out about 1/4" worth of the inner strands, trim those with scissors, pull the outer sheath back down, then a quick heating/melting of each end with my lighter and crimping flat with my hemostats.
