Introduction: 2 Strand Gaucho
This knot is an attractive alternative to a lanyard knot. I used a little over a foot of cord to make each of the top three knots. You will need a dowel or pencil to help shape the knot.
Fold your cord in half and put the loop under a rubber band at the end of the dowel.
Wrap both ends around the dowel.
Take the lower end 1 and bring it under one cord and over the next.
Take the second cord 2 and bring it under one cord and over one.
Bring 2 under the first cord and over one
Bring 1 over two cords, under one cord and over one..
Bring the two ends side by side.
Bring 2 under two cords.
Bring 1 under two cords
Bring 2 over two and from left to right through the center of the knot
Bring 1 over two and from left to right through the center of the knot
Remove the knot from the dowel and tighten
