    Default Solomon Bar Cross Tutorial

    Guests can not see images in the messages. Please register in the forum.

    For this tutorial I used 2 - 4" lengths of paracord. The cords shoud be folded so that the outer lengths are 1/2 the length if the inner.

    One at a time take each outer end out of the loop it is going through, thread it through the split ring and back through the loop.

    Reverse the whole shebang and 2" from the last knot begin knotting in the opposite direction.

    To tighten this side bar pull out the center 2 strands from the body and one at a time tighten the side knots.

    The knot is complete. Trim and sear the ends
    ************************************************** ******************************
    An aleternate start is to make a loop and tie a knot around it with a separate cord. A1 - short end, B - long end.
    Once again you will be knotting with the shorter cords. A1 and A2. Cord B in photo naturally positions itself to the right beside the other long cord. Tie four more knots.

    Here is what the cross looks like using the alternate method of tying the top.

    Dragon Fly Knot Gear Hanger
    When I was looking at a dragon fly knot it dawned on me that the wings would make dandy loops for hanging items. There are even two small loops extra loops at the bottom end as a bonus. Tie like the cross but eliminate the side bars.
