    Where did you get the bead on top? The one that has a double loop of para cord through it?

    Thanks! There is an Ace Hardware a mile or so from me I will go check out and look for those. Finding beads that will fit over 2 strands of 550 paracord has been a challenge.

    It's been a little while. Here's a few from me.

    6 cord braid dog lead. I need to practice this braid some more to get it even. I'm also going to learn the 8 cord braid for an even bigger size.

    please suggest a nice knot for thin (about 1.5mm) kid leather cord which I try to use for flashlight lanyard.
    The first attempt looks not bad but looks simplistic to my taste (I simply counldn't find any nice knots in goodle):

    Can't speak for others, but I get mine from a nearby Army / Navy Surplus store.

    I have ran into a problem while making a dog leash. I started from the clip end (That attaches to the dog collar) and now I am at the handle and cant figure out how I am supposed to do it. I did the cobra weave. I didnt realize in the youtube video I watched that he started at the handle end and not the "clip" end.

    Any info would be appreciated so I can get this project done asap.

    Thanks!

    Make the loop for the handle. Somehow force the two core inner cords through the cobra weave of the leash. Then contine weaving the cobra over the first cobra for a couple or so inches. Kinda like splicing the two and then doubling over to make it hold.

    Hope that helps, and let us know how you get on?

    Here's a video tutorial for tying a Gaucho knot, shown tied with paracord. I've used these knots for making beads for lanyards/fobs, but as with other Turk's head knot variations, you can tie them on/around all kinds of things, like flashlights...

    I saw a picture on Ebay of something similar and thought I would try my hand at it. It's called a Cobra Knot. Found a video online that really helped. The over/under part was tricky at first, but I have the hang of it now. For the picture Adjusting the saturation and contrast on my camera phone worked really well.

    GLENDAYLE....what knot is the long one on top? That looks very interesting. I am still trying to make a lanyard knot that I am happy with. Yours looks really good.

    It's called a "Two-Bight Turk's Head Knot". I hadn't loved the look of a lot of the other braids, but I liked this one and I think it's pretty cool. Here is the video I used.
