    Here are some that I have made in the past




    I don't make them too often anymore, but they are fun.
    I and my 6 year old taught his Tiger Den how to make them about a month or so ago. Next time we may try the bracelets.

    FINALLY able to log onto this particular thread. I keep getting "kicked out" whenever I click on this.

    Great stuff going on here people! I'm in the dark about these things, that's why I bought some off of GhostRider. Excellent fobs/lanyards to be sure and am using it them to the full.

    here is a monkeys fist.


    And here is a cobra stitch with a twist. The picture doesn turn out that well because the rope is jet black. Basically instead of switching sides when you tye the knot, always keep the same strand doing the same thing. Like if the left strand goes on top the first time, do that same thing everytime in stead of switching off.

    GhostRider.

    I have seen those "ball knots" on your lanyards.
    Could you tell me how to make those?
    Trying to figure out for ages now....or at least a name?

    Thx

    laserbokkie, that's a "monkey fist" (aka "Turk's head"), with a marble (or other round item) core.

    Thx GreenLED,
    the name was the key......looks simple...am trying desperately.

    A few yrs back, my ex's sister gave me one of those knots as for the key.
    Was always thinking of how to make it myself. Saw it now here and decided to find out.

    M.TEX,

    That was the first site I found when looking for instructions too. I found this other site, though, that showed how to hold the know while putting it together. It helped me a bunch.

    Here's a link:

    Keep trying, you'll get it. It looks simple when finished, but it's a bugger trying to tighten it up without getting the lines crossed up and remembering which direction you're tightening it up in.

    I bought a handful of these things at my local Gander Mountain the other day. They are for paracord, but I'm not sure how I might use them properly.

    Can anyone here demonstrate some possible uses for these things?



    Thanks,
    Dan

    and if someone knows some more paracord weaving methods with lionks to them, that would be great.

    here a pic of my first monkey fists.

    I didn't manage to stick the ends underneath. so i cut them and melted the ends, seems to be tight.

    Where do you find the plastic 'end caps' (joins two open ends of paracord) and 'slide lock' (push the button allows it to slide/relocate) pieces?

    thanks

    laserbokkie,
    Just now noticed your question directed at me about the Monkey’s Fist and apologize for not responding earlier. I see you’ve got it figured out.

    Here is an excellent link for instructions on other different tying methods.

    Thx ghostrider,

    am tying and my monkeyfist has gained perfection already.
    Can't see them at th moment...they are lying everywhere here in different sizes and colours.....

    Unfortunately it turned out to be difficult to get propper paracord here in israel.
    Going to a shop that sells rope and asking them if they have an idea where to get this kind of cord in different colours instead of getting their nylon cord....is like insulting the dealers.

    Seems i will have to wait until i get back to europe or order them from the states. ubraidit.com offers them for 7 cent per foot. Makes 0.23 bucks per meter = 1.03 new israeli Shekel.....the cheapest 4mm nylon cord here was more than that...but no shipping.

    What also helos, taking the inner strands out of the nylon cord helps making them softer.

    Will keep on stitching until that is enough as well.

    thx again
    bokkie

    Here's my latest entry. I've had alot of fun figuring this stuff out.

    I'm not sure of the terminology, so I'll just post these pictures.

    This first one is what I believe to be called a square sinnet covered by a spiral. The length of material is aprox 6' white and 6' white paracord.



    This next one, I'm quite proud of. It's another square sinnet, but it's covered by a cobra knot, alternating between white and black.

    Here's how it started out:



    And here's how it ended up:



    Here's my total collection, so far:



    Keep it coming folks, I'm eager to learn.

    Thanks for looking,
    Dan

    here's the result:



    not bad at all for a first attempt.... Think I'll give this one to my girlfriend tomorrow as a valentinesday gift... (we have a tradition of only giving gifts we made ourselves for valentinesday)

    At first she didn't believe I made it but when I showed her the amount of similar colored paracord under my desk she just had to

    Think I'll be making quite a few more lanyards... These will be just great as trading materials for my GeoCaching adventures

    Anyone know any websites with info on lanyardmaking except that boondoggleman and lighthound??

    Google Folsom knots. If you still can't find it, I'll link it later tonight.

    I made a lanyard type thing for my mini mag. It is basically like a holster for it.



    Here is what it looks like with it around the mini mag. I think it will work well for camping, I can put it on a carabiner and attach it to my pants.
