    The pics are looking good. I too would love to see an "ible" about the process. I understand that posting a coherent and easy to follow "ible" isn't easy. I can't wait to see how the step-by-step goes though. I'm a crazy dog lover and would love to have something heavy duty for them to walk with. Good luck!

    I'm sill trying to figure out how to post and all that good stuff.... I'm electronically challenged, I'll just have my 13 y/o to help me out.
    Leash details are as follows.... I used 4 strands (2 black and 2 copper) of 550 approx. 20-25 ft long each. I made a 4 strand round braid in the center and folded that over to form the loop for the clip that hooks to the collar. Then after bringing together all 8 strands I started the 8 strand square braid. I used a 4X5 turks head (doubled) to cover the joint where the 2 braids meet, I think it looks nicer. Then, the tricky part.... once again you have to split the 8 down to a pair of 4 strands each (for the handle). I covered that joint (the transition from leash to handle) with a T-shaped turks head (doubled again). The main part of the handle are double cord cross knots leading up to where the strands meet to close up the handle, I covered that joined part with another turks head, a 2 bight that also can be used as a pad for the back of your hand or a handle in itself.
    I'm starting another one this weekend and hopefully I can have it posted.
