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 and bring it under one cord and over the next.
Take the second cord and bring it under one cord and over one
Bring that same cord under the first cord and over one
Bring the other cord under one cord and over one.
Bring the lower end on the right under two cords.
Bring the remaining end under two cords
Bring the other end over two and from left to right through the center of the knot
Bring the remaining end over two and from left to right through the center of the knot
Remove the knot from the dowel and tighten
