How to tie a lanyard knot / Stormdrane

This video tutorial shows how to tie a lanyard knot with a loop.

This knot is also known as #787 in The Ashley Book of Knots, the sailor’s knife lanyard knot, marlinspike lanyard knot, single strand diamond knot, two strand diamond knot, and bosun’s whistle knot.

I used and 18 inch length of paracord for the demonstration, which is more than needed, but this will work with various length/diameters of cord.

After the knot is tied, I also show the adjustment of the loop size by finding one of the loop leads and creating slack, which is worked back thru the knot. You can do it the other way around to make the loop longer — via Youtube
