Looking for a way to join 3 strands of cord Any suggestions? Answered

I'm looking for a way to join 3 strands of cord. It doesn't have to be simple (I'm good with knots.) I just need a way to join 3 strands of cord. Any suggestions?

If you mean join end to end, then I suggest a sheet bend. But other bends will work, too. figure 8 follow thru is nice if you'll need to undo it easily. Google images for help on these.

Why not try braiding?

GO kiteman!

what is the purpose for the cord?

Why not just tie all three in a simple overhand knot?

Or, if you want something flatter, lay all three cords pointing like a Mercedes badge. Mentally number them, 1-2-3.

> Tie the end of 1 in an overhand knot around 2.
> Tie the end of 2 in an overhand knot around 3.
> Tie the end of 3 in an overhand knot around 1.

That will make a triangle of strings, and when you pull them all tight, it should make a flat triangular knot in the centre.


All right, thanks. I'll try it.
