Lanyard (Diamond) Knot Tying

Start with a bight in the rope. In one end form a loop. Pass the other end under and around the loop to tie a Carrick Bend. Pass this end around outside the bight and up through the center of the Carrick Bend. Do the same with the other end and then tighten both ends to form the knot.

Lanyard (Diamond) Knot Details

Name: The Lanyard Knot, also known as the Diamond Knot and Friendship Knot, (ABOK # 787, p 141.) makes a fixed loop in the middle of a piece of rope.

Structure: Steps 1 to 6 of the animation show how the ends of the loop are joined together with a Carrick Bend. This pleasingly symmetrical knot forms the center of the Lanyard Knot. Each end is then wrapped around outside the loop and up through the center, away from the loop. The resulting appearance creates the strong impression that the two ropes are passing through a collar.

Use: The Lanyard Knot is often used as a decorative component of a Knife Lanyard.

Disclaimer: Any activity that involves ropes is potentially hazardous. Lives may be at risk - possibly your own. Considerable attention and effort have been made to ensure that these descriptions are accurate. However, many critical factors cannot be controlled, including: the choice of materials; the age, size, and condition of ropes; and the accuracy with which these descriptions have been followed. No responsibility is accepted for incidents arising from the use of this material.
