What knot(s) is/are this long lanyard?

I need something similar for a trucker's wallet...


It's a spool knit lanyard, 2 peg version. I have a tutorial. ;)

Think I found it on your blog. Two-peg spool knit lanyard @
https://youtu.be/bentrOlcfFs

Lanyard knot might be a little harder to get right, but ought to be better than my current shoelace-daisy chain job. :lol: I've had this wallet about 35 years, and it's gone from the original chain, to an Army boot lace, to a work boot lace... time for something special.

Thanks for putting the info out there, stormdrane.

http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/how-many-hobbies-activities-do-you-have.1038993/page-4#post-33839610Worthless without pics, I know; I'll try to edit/add one to this post soon... it can be seen at the URL if you don't mind checking into a motorcycle forum.

I made a spool from a coffee can, duct tape and pieces of wire hangar; and a spike from hangar also.
Bought 100 feet of 550 cord, and cut a 10 foot length to knit the lanyard. First attempt was too loose, so I think the 550 might be a tad thick to pull into a tight braid - but the second attempt was good enough to keep going with... the la yard knot didn't come out quite right, but overall it's good enough for me.

Fun project.

Thanks for continuing to post here, Stormdrane. I finally looked at a few of your videos and now find myself messing with cord in my office as well. That's a nice group of marlinspikes but I'll admit that it took me a minute to realize the great relevance.

What's the deal with glow in the dark paracord?

I'm all about camo. But after watching that episode of "Alone" where the guy loses his ferro rod. And has to be evacuated because of it. I want to put some bright green glow in the dark paracord on my ferro rods. I found some 9 strand on ebay. I don't need much of it. Just gonna put some loops on each. So I can see them during the day and at night. If I ever accidently put them down.

How long does it glow for? Do you have to hit with light before it glows? For how long will it last? I mean just bright green is probably enough. Even without any glow in the dark. Was just curious.

If you don't care about glow, try some reflective tent cord - shows up well when you shine a light.
