    Hello everyone! I'm new to the board and am here in hopes of requesting some of your expertise. I have searched YouTube and image after image trying to find out what kind of knot is used at the top of this lanyard I would like to make for my dad. It would be the part that would be resting at the back of the neck.

    Any advice is very much appreciated!!! ImageUploadedByParacord Forum1438004148.540629.jpg

    Welcome aboard! That looks like it is probably a cobra knot (Solomon Bar), just turned up on its side, so it's harder to recognize.

    Ahhh that makes total sense. It looked so thin and streamlined at that angle. Going to have to figure out a different braid as I think that is just to white and heavy for the purpose. Thanks so much for the help!

    Maybe try a 4-strand round braid. I've seen some lanyards done that way that looked really nice.
