I discovered some cotton twine - just enough to make a few zipper pulls

I generally use one of these ending knots in my four strand projects.

JD has a very clear tutorial for tying this attractive knot
diamond sennit knot

ABOK 757
ABOK 757, the "diamond sinnet knot" is a easy knot to tie.  Makes a nice start for a zipper pull.

I have just finished this piece for a local museum. It is a Swan's Neck hung from the back of a horse drawn narrow boat (canal boat) between the top of the rudderstock (the Ram's Head) and the top of the rudder blade. Purely decorative. Not to be confused with the Swan's Neck on a powered boat whch is part of the tiller (and made of tubular steel in a Z shape). The piece measures just over 2 feet in length from the base of the loop at the top (ignoring the tails used to fit it).

Made from 6mm unbleached cotton by crowning 6 strands over a core which is thicker at the middle - in this case the core is a piece of 8mm rope with a folded triangle of calico rolled around it.

A zipper pull on a new "work" backpack. I used reflective tent guy line (Sea to Summit), with a Matthew walker, some crown sinnet and a manrope knot to finish it of. Tripling  rather than doubling made it somewhat crowded, and it ended up a bit untidy when I cut the ends off (need to sharpen that knife, methinks).




For another couple of zippers on the same pack I wanted them more discreet:

Reflective tent guyline. Intended to hang on the back of my work backpack.

Loop of three strand sinnet, mathew walker, six strand sinnet, and a five-sided star knot. About 20 cm long in totalt.

Becomes much more tedious to tighten as you make it longer.  Makes a nice small zipper pull.

Extended diamond/lanyard knot
It took four feet of 1/4" cotton cord to set op this doubled knot.  7" were left over after tightening.
