Knife Lanyard Knot

Did you ever try tying a knot only to succeed the first time and then, seemingly, never again?

I have been working on the knife lanyard knot seen here and have had some limited success. Strangely I could tie it the first and second time on my first attempt. Now it takes me 10 or 15 attempts and sometimes I still can't get it to work out.

Even worse, sometimes it does work out through no more than dumb luck.

I've tied and retied this knot until my hands ache. Sometimes I'm rewarded with a nice looking round turk's head type knot and others I'm left scratching my head...

Give it a try and let me know how you fare. It cannot be as difficult as I seem to be making it. It is, after all, just a twisted piece of rope.

Thanks for reading,
