More knotty stuff on my blog:

This video will show how to tie a Gaucho knot using a length of paracord, Jumbo Perma-Lok lacing needle, 1/2" diameter PVC pipe, rubber band, and a clay stylus. I've used the stylus for years as a makeshift marlinspike and it's done just fine for that purpose. You can also use an awl or other pointed object to dress a knot, as you work out the slack and tighten it up, keeping it neat and even in appearance.

This decorative knot can be added to a cane, walking stick, hiking staff, knife, sheath, pen, lanyards, fobs, used as a Boy Scout woggle or neckerchief slide, etc.. Like many Turk's head knots, you'll find yourself looking for ways to use them and different places to tie them...
