Single strand lanyard
« on: September 05, 2016, 12:30:30 PM »
I got this idea from a Stormdrane (paracordist extraordinaire) post.  I made two lops with a single strand and tied the ends together with a 4 bight, 3 lead TH knot.  The loops can be made any size.  Here is a wrist size (or belt size).  This is a prototype made with the shoelace I always carry with me.  The completed lanyard will have the ends trimmed and buried in the knot

single strand lanyard adjustable loops

If the single strand lanyard knot is tied without the overhand knot to lock it in place, the knot will slide on the cord to give adjustable size loops.  This works best in natural material such as this cotton sash cord.  Paracord and other synthetic material is too slippery for the knot to stay in place.  This shows what I think of when I have trouble falling asleep.

I already found a couple of uses for the sliding loop lanyard.  My wife has requests for many more.

Yes it is really useful from what I have seen.  I gotta try to tie some of these.

I am so happy you found this forum. Sadly,  because I wouldn't have found you without it. No fault of B&B or your work, just me. I admire your fascination and tenacity.

I need to check, but
 don't it just sound like tenacity and net making are somehow related terminology? 
Ok, I won't check on that, really. But I think of it like this.

The ability to make cordage was a primary thing to allow monkeys to make cathedrals and you take everything that that is
and make it into art and a life,
 knowledge and tradition. It is superlative!
 From my pov all I can do is tie my shoes and hang a tarp.

Maybe I should learn more and try harder,
(?) for me, it's too late.  Or even worse.

Do you have advice for storing, saving obscure knowledge... Looks like you do a lot to those ends. So how can adummy like me apply your persistence, style, understanding to everything else. If you say
 just do it

I get that. But don't you want the best fibers?

Asemery post to a couple of other forums dealing with the outdoors and knots, including one that I think is his own. IMO he is as close an expert on knots as one can get so why question him on his choice of "fibers". :shrug:

For another approach to the single strand lanyard try
The fiador knot is used to make bridles for horses.  It has other uses as well.  There is one upper loop and two lower loops that can be made any size.  It can be hung from a belt or any appropriate place.  The sliding knots I added to the lower example clamp down snugly on flashlight, water bottle, or whatever.

I post to several sites that have to do with the outdoors and primitive technology.  My wife and I have no children and my nephews and nieces have no interest in the subject.  By posting to as many sites as possible I hope to pass on knowledge that might otherwise be lost.  I prefer to work with natural materials such as cotton, linen, jute.

I have no tool belt and I needed a handy way to carry a hammer during a recent project. This double loop knot worked very well. My belt goes through the top loop and I slip the hammer into the bottom loop when I am not using it

Cool knot, but since I already have a hammer-loop on my bibs, I probably won't need this one. ;D

This a good idea, I can not wear a toolbelt, show me a plumber that does. When on scaffolding it come in handy for hanging a impact driver and a drill, which is something I do often. Very handy and practical knot
