Very nice knot work! :)
It is inspired by your work ! :twothumbs

Thank you all very much !
It would surprise me if there was a tutorial for this lanyard...
But you can find lots of tutorials about spool knitting, that's basically all you need to know.

Very nice work storm. I bought a couple spool knitting set ups and am ready to give it a go. I take it with me to my cabins way off grid and it's a perfect way to relax.

Ma & Pa gave me an iProtec 1400 zoomable LED flashlight for my birthday, and I used up a remnant strand of paracord to tie a Turk's head knot around the grip section and a simple wrist lanyard with a two-strand stopper knot.

The wrist lanyard that came with my new XTAR Venus WK16 flashlight was too small to fit over my hand and onto my wrist, so I just grabbed a scrap length of red 1.4mm cord and tied a simple doubled lanyard/diamond knot/loop to use until I get around to making something more permanent for the light...

An 8 lead 5 bight gutted paracord Turk's head knot over an oval wood bead, on a leather bootlace wrist lanyard with two-strand Matthew Walker knot., attached to the flashlight's pocket clip with a reinforced ring hitch.

I made a short video tutorial on Instagram showing how to make a Plafond knot with paracord.
