Lanyard Knot – Multi Strand Lanyard Knot Jib Shackle or Soft Shackle

Lanyard Knot

Lanyard Knot: A rather elegant knot that is tied into a end of multi-strand rope or cord. Works well in a three strand rope, but in this video I show how I used it to make a Soft Shackle or Jib Shackle with six strands.

This particular knot was take from Des Pawson’s book:

I used flat seizing at the very top and near to the bottom of the soft shackle. I used the following method as shown in the diagram below, with the exception that I replaced the eye splice by using a Clove Hitch as my anchor point.
