Picture of ABOK 792

Ashley Book Of Knots # 792 makes a nice lanyard knot. Shown in red in the photo on the left it is larger than the diamond/lanyard knot on the left. You can see the pattern when it is tied in two colors.

I normally tie this knot using the two ends of one cord. I used the two colors to make it easier to show the steps in tying the knot.
