Spanish Ring Knot Variation

Bruce Grant in :"How to Make Cowboy Horse Gear" presents the Spanish Ring Knot using a 5 bight, 3 lead TH as the base. In this variation I use the 4 bight 3 lead TH as the base.

I used gutted paracord (remove inside strands) so that the cord lies flat.

A dowel is needed

(fingers can be used once you are familiar with the process).

The clear glass marble (blue background shows through) will be used as luggage ID.

The other will be attached to a ceiling fan/light to eliminate a long stretch.

For the third example I tied the ring knot around a dime (small coin) and will use it as a lanyard.

    It is not difficult. Use gutted paracord (inside strands removed) so that the cord lies flat.
    Use a dowel about the size of the marble.and tighten knot on the dowel
    Remove the dowel and insert the marble and start the tightening process.
    Do not try to remove all the slack in one attempt. Adjust the position of the marble as you tighten

    I love how it looks with the marble in it! Is it hard to get it in there and tighten it all up?
