    Nice work. Any chance of getting some info (instructions) on that footrope knot?

    Regards,

    Dangit! I just returned the Ashley's knot bible.
    The diamond knot is really just a turks plait that's been squished, right?
    Do you put anything in the middle of the knot?

    It looks like one. However it is not. The diamond is a lanyard knot that can be made with any number of strands. Process differs when using only two and it has other names like lanyard knot and boatswains whistle knot
