    I thought I made my knots tight, I have calloused fingers so I must be!

    Any way I made a snake knot dog collar recently for a friends dog, its stretched..... the collar in hanging around the dogs knees..... As it was one of my early creations I can only think that I didnt tie it tight enough, but is there any other reason?

    I have made a dozen dog leads in the last week and could really do without them stretching!:eek:

    Did you use paracord from a different supplier when you tied the snake knot?
    I'm tying the snake knot for practice today. I started last night just to learn. I'm not making anything yet with this knot.
    Note to self do not use the snake knot for a collar.
