Picture of How to Tie the Lanyard Knot
Many people including myself have had trouble following the Stormdrane youtube video on tying the lanyard knot so i have done some research and found the solution!

All you need is a reasonable length of para cord or whatever you wish to use.

I've had trouble in the past with paracord coming undone when working at hights. this knot seems to hold a lot better.
I had a bit of trouble with the doubling but I got it in the end.

Another instructable for this dog leash suggested your lanyard knot. Works great, though I ended up tightening it one string at a time for an extra tight knot. I also added some superglue so the two spare strands (the ones that are just going through the center) don't slip through and actually add support. Fantastic instructable.

The second picture in step 5 is not clear enough, possibly because the picture is too small.

done in 1. Excellent instructions, thanks very much.

The first couple of times I tied this knot, I came back to go over your steps. And I could not for the life of me figure out how to make this knot slide in order to tighten a lanyard or drawstring. Until I realized that this knot is the same one that I saw to put some cord on my water bottle and it hit me, I can just put my loop through the center of the knot! And now I can tie it without instruction. It is fast becoming my favorite knot. Thank you!

How does this work for tying a lanyard knot in the middle of a very long rope, say 100 feet, with other lanyard knots tied in it? I cannot see feeding that much rope through the loops as this demonstration shows.
jolora - one of the "tricks" to learn is to push a "bight" of cord through and then pull the long part through - fast and easy, with no extra twists to the cord.

wind the excess cord around a spool so you only have to pull a short bit through
each time....

Nicely done! I found out how to tie one, but with just one strand (without doubling it). Your 'ible showed me how to do it with two strands. Goog job.
