A Two-strand Paracord Lanyard Knot

About: No matter where you go, there you are.

As knot #802 in 'The Ashley Book of Knots', Ashley says it has "...somewhat the character of the diamond knot.", found on page 145 of the book, and is a two-strand version of knot #758, Captain Charles W. Smith's Sinnet Knot.

A couple of examples that I show of the knot have additional gaucho knots tied with 0.9mm cord around the end strands, for an added decorative look.

    I've not done a tutorial on that, but it's a variation of stairstep stitching with parallel lines of 1/16" cord worked around the core strands of the paracord Solomon bar/cobra stitch/Portuguese sinnet handle.
