Intro: Single Strand Lanyard
The single strand lanyard can have loops of any size. The lanyard can have fixed position loops such as the examples in the top photo. The knot can also adjust to hold a broom off the floor or hold a flashlight securely or anything else you might think of
Please be aware of the hazards of wearing a lanyard around your neck. This lanyard does not have a break-away feature. I carry the wrist lanyard only around the palm and back of my hand for the same reason.
Tie overhand knot in cord where you want to position the ,loop.
Bring cord ends trough overhand knot to make loops of desired size.
With right hand end make a bight in back.
With left hand end make a bight in front.
Bring new right hand end in back around all and up through the bight.
Repeat in front with left hand end.
Bring upper right hand end down and then up through the bight.
Bring upper left hand end down and through the bight.
The base of the knot is now complete. Gradually remove slack and move the base so that is positioned atop and covering the overhand knot.
Take either end and follow the adjacent strand of the base knot to double the knot.
Do the same with the other end.
Now work all the slack out of the knot. Cut each end as close as possible to the completed knot. Take a blunt awl and push the exposed ends back into the knot. Push and adjust the adjoining strands to hide the ends.
If the knot is tied WITHOUT the locking overhand it will slide to give adjustable size loops.Put on a temporary seizing and proceed as described above,
