Practice and Research Pay Off

Three days of practicing the diamond knot/stopper knot pretty much got me nowhere - except more frustrated...,br> Then I found this YourTube video How To Tie a Paracord Lanyard Knot/2-Strand Diamond Knot Tutorial. Nothing magical about the "paracord" method, it is just a clearer, easier to understand method of how to tie the diamond knot than what I'd seen on the soft shackle tutorials.

Side by side: Early effort of following soft shackle tutorials (bottom shackle) and first effort with the "paracord" method (top shackle):

Clearly, one is a diamond knot; and one is not! The answers are out there...
