    I have done a globe knot around a large marble and have used 4 different strands ( 2 yellow 2 green ) it is pretty tight but i am battling to make it extremely tight - any suggestions ?

    Also i would like suggestions on how to finish it off into a handle , i started a handle but i dont know if it will be my best option ImageUploadedByParacord Forum1462087504.137433.jpg

    The best way to tighten it Imho is to stop where you want and then tuck the remaining cords back toward the ball.To have a handle on there you'll have to use what cord you already have and work towards the handle then finish it as you would at a buckle. You can start at handle and work back to the ball but I think whatever connection you make wouldn't look uniform.

    To tighten it simply put it in hot water for around 30 sec. Then let it dry[emoji106]
