Under Two Wall Diamond Knot

The diamond knot is an attractive stopper knot but can loosen when handled, especially when nylon or other synthetic material is used.

I show four strands here but any number greater than three is possible following these instructions

Study the photographs. The under two wall diamond knot shown on the left in each photo, because of the added crossings, is more secure than the ordinary diamond knot shown the right

The added crossings come from the use of the UNDER TWO wall knot.

Step 1:

Here is a loosely tied under two wall diamond knot. The cord passes UNDER ONE crown and UNDER THREE strands as it goes through the center

Step 2:

In the regular crown each cord goes UNDER ONE crown and UNDER TWO crossing strands as it goes through the center.

Step 3:

The diamond knot is a combination of the crown knot where each strand goes OVER the adjacent strand

Step 4:

and the Wall knot where each strand goes UNDER the adjacent strand.

Step 5: Tie the Regular Diamond Knot

To make the regular diamond knot first tie a crown knot and underneath it a wall knot.

Step 6:

Next bring any strand (grey in the photo) through the center of the crown.

Step 7:

Bring the remaining strands through the center of the crown. Tighten and the regular crown knot is complete.

Step 8: Tie the Under Two Wall Diamond

To make the locked diamond knot first complete step step five. Take any strand (in this case grey south) through adjacent bight (east, also grey)

Step 9:

Take each of the remaining strands through their adjacent bights

White strand through white bight (large photo north)

Grey through grey.(top right photo west)

White through white..The under two wall is now complete.

Step 10:

Take any strand (in this case white south) and bring it up through the center of the crown.

Step 11:

Do the same with the remaining strands. Tighten and the knot is complete.
