  • As stated in the tutorial, pulling on the ends of this knot will not tighten it properly. You will just get a tangled mess. Have patience with it. If you feed the individual cords through, you will have a very nice lanyard knot. 
  • An alternate method of tightening is to gently pull on either end of your knot while rolling the knot in between your fingers to work out the slack. 
  • If you are putting this knot on a knife or anything else, be sure to insert the paracord through the hole of the tool before you tie the knot!
  • Once you learn this knot well, it can be tied with as little as 1 ft. of paracord. Until then, it is best to use at least 2 ft.
