Thinking about making a set, at least one for my wife. I have made a 5 knot trivet from 8 mm sisal.

My first attempt at making a lanyard it's a test before I make one with decent rope. This was just 5euro for 50m PP from aliexpress. The tightness on the 17 strand french sennit is all over the place some areas are tight some are loose. This might be because the rope has 0 rigidity and is also hollow and without a core and has some stretch to it. It also could be a lack of skill or both. I am looking forward to making one with some hard 3strand cotton rope. I think this would solve some of the problems. If anyone has some tips to make the next one better feel free to reply or send a message.

Hi jensens.v and welcome.

Your work is pretty good considering the challenge given to you via the chosen cord.
A quality hard-ish laid cord can help immensely. Too hard and that gives challenges as well.
There are some real good braided cords out there to consider also.
Only tip I have is to fair and snug consistently all the way.
Thanks fort sharing.
