Single Strand Ringbolt Hitching

Ringbolt Hitching Key Ring
My nephew wanted a large key ring.  He liked this.

I started with 6' of 550 paracord.  I left 6" tag end of cord at the beginning and began single strand ringbolt hitching around a 1 1/2" OD steel ring.  Tied the 2 ends using a diamond knot relative.   Had about 4" of cord left over .



I prefer this alternate ending. I took the two ends and tied them into a 4 bight, 3 lead Turks Head Knot. Saw the idea in rein endings in Bruce Grants "How to make Cowboy Horse Gear".

I really like those.  I should learn how to make them someday.  Probably someday soon.

The Ringbolt hitching is easy.  The Turks Head knot is a bear because of poor directions.  Once it is made it doubles nicely.

Here I have once tried to make, and, it seems, it has turned out. :)
