    Hey guys
    Just thought I'd pass this along I found a cool YouTube site. It's all about unusual knots it really informative and he's in the process of writing a book on the subject too. I have done a couple of the knots in paracord for key chains check it out Link.
    Do any of you know of any others?

    First, Sir, I will have to apologize to you. Your post sounded suspicious, so instead of clicking the link, I hit up YouTube manually, and typed in the text I saw when I hovered over the link, figuring that it was some sort of malicious or commercial-related redirect. But I am happy to see that it is not. Nothing against you; just my cautious nature.

    I will quote The Princess Bride: "I always think everything's a trap. That's why I'm still alive."

    That aside, I can see that this channel will be very useful to anyone working with cordage. At first glance, I can see at least three knots which will bring benefit to myself and my friends. I'll try to spread it around.

    Thank you for posting the link.

    The Celtic bar knot on the link page looks as though it would be a good one for a paracord survival bracelet as it is made from a single length of cord and doesn't look too difficult to unravel and remake. Plus it looks a s though it is fairly easy to adapt into a wider braid.
    I may have a go at it tomorrow with some 4mm .
    Thanks for the link Jester.

    Actually, the fact that I typed in the information on YouTube suggests I trust you more than others. Most times I wouldn't have even gone that far. ^_^

    Has anyone figured out how to expand on the one-rope cargo net from TIAT's videos? I can tie the start-up fine, but can't figure out what they're getting at after that.

    You have no idea how happy you have made me jester02k! I just joined this forum and have been wanting to reply to this thread since I submitted my request for membership. JD does a lot of amazing rope work and consistently puts out some excellent videos. I will take a look at the one-rope cargo net qharjo and see if I can figure anything out.
