Introduction: The Two-strand Footrope Knot

More knotty stuff on my blog: Stormdrane's Blog

Examples shown with Kiko Tiki beads provided by Schmuckatelli Co.

The Two-strand Footrope Knot is #783 in, 'The Ashley Book of Knots'(ABoK).

The video tutorial will show how to tie a two-strand footrope knot, using a length of paracord. The knot itself uses about four inches of ungutted paracord. For a short zipper pull, you can use as little as six inches of cord, use more for a longer loop or additional knots to suit your project.

The knot can be used as a stopper/terminal knot, zipper pull, lanyard/fob for a knife/flashlight/keychain or other EDC gadgets and gizmos, used singly or tied in a series for decoration.

For some reason, the YouTube videos just don't get much traffic here... :/

That's a good looking knot. Might be using that on a few knives.
