    lanyard link thread

    Alright, i dont know how well this will fly but i figure with all the lanyard and fob fans here we should have a thread that is a database of sorts, so we dont have to search the forum for an hour to find a link to a particular knot. So ill contribute the ones that i have found moust usefull, and please feel free to add some and help us all out. I need some help though, you guys know of much better stuff out there.

    This site has many knots on it, and a great discription of the knife lanyard knot.

    this site is great for any sinnet for braid that i can think of.

    I posted this on the other thread awhile ago. I stated then that I thought it would be a good idea to do something like this.

    I strongly suggest you (or anyone interested in tying) look through the entire thread. There is all kinds of information from different methods of tying, to sources for learning materials, to supplies (cord, beads, etc…). There are also many tips & tricks that some of us have learned through experience and passed on through this thread.

    The good doctor started something special when he introduced this thread. It originally started out as a “Show Us Your …Pics” type thread, but has since evolved into something far more in depth, and constructive. There is so much information on this thread that IMHO, a sticky could be created just to list all the information on tying (supplies, instruction, etc…). I myself have been starting to keep notes, but they are in no way inclusive of all the pertinent information contained with in this thread.

    Hello Irish Lager,

    You asked me about the Cobra Twist today. It's really nothing more than a Cobra Stitch only you don’t alternate the ends.

    I did a little step-by-step, visual tutorial of the Cobra Stitch. The pics should explain it. I tried to take them so that they would teach without any commentary, but tomorrow I will try to repost them with a commentary.

    What about links to places to buy lanyard supplies? Rope/Nylon, clips, those little skull beads, etc?

    Also, for those of us who FAILED knot tying in Boy Scouts, anybody out there willing to help out a spyderbrother?

    Here's what looks to be pretty good instructions for the Turks Head.

    http://www.folsoms.net/knots/tejay/index.htm

    IL, it might be a good idea to start putting all these links in the first post. Otherwise, as this thread gets bigger, we'll just need another thread to index this one.

    Here's a short 'How to' video I made on the round sinnet lanyard/fob. I think a beginner would get the gist of it. I used two pieces of gutted paracord, one 30 inches the other 25 inches which will give a finished lanyard/fob with about a 3 inch loop and a 2 inch body. To make it a square sinnet instead, after the first stitch, just keep the cords going straight across each other instead of at an angle for each stitch and you'll end up with a square body with solid colors on the sides instead of the round sinnets spiral effect.

    I made an attempt at a tutorial for one of the lanyards I've made. Hopefully it's not too confusing. Here's the link: Paracord Lanyard Project
