    I saw a tutorial on YT on this knot and it confused the heck out of me. I'll stick with the double diamond.

    It was time consuming and difficult to complete, with me being legally blind, but I think it came out ok.

    Very nice work! I use a four-cord braid for my dog leashes, too. How do you splice the handle loop closed, underneath that pretty covering?

    I haven't been able to invent a tidy, strong splice, so mine end up sort of crammed together and then braided over. :7)

    I make and eye splice to form the handle loop.

    https://www.itstactical.com/skillcom/climbing/how-to-make-a-fast-rope-eye-splice/

    The cover knot is a turks head, once tight I trim the cords close and tuck the ends back under with force to hide them. Then roll the knot between a heavy book and a hard surface to shape it and give it a nice form. In fact I do that a couple of times during tightening, it really helps.
