How to Tie a Multi Strand Diamond Knot

This is a relatively easy Diamond Knot to tie. I think the thing that I really like about this particular Diamond Knot is that it is not often seen. A Multi Strand Diamond Knot also makes a good stopper knot within a rope. The one problem that I find when tying the Diamond knot in a rope, is getting the rope to lay as though it was never undone. One of the trick of tying a Diamond Knot in a rope, is to make sure that you are constantly twisting the rope in the same direction as when the rope was made. To me personally the lay of the rope is just as important as tying the actual diamond knot.

Diamond Knot in 3 Strand Rope

A rather nice decorative diamond knot that would look good on any lanyard especially on say a Ditty Bag Lanyard, even though it looks a bit like a tractor tyre. When tying the Diamond Knot in a lanyard consisting of three or more separate complete strands, then the issue of unlaying and then laying the rope is not a problem. I think the best thing to do is to learn how to tie the multi strand diamond knot using separate length of line. Then practice unravelling rope (that is the easy part) and then laying it again, so the it looks natural, that is the hard part.

  1. Thanks for diamond knot video!
    Need to attempt this for the 8 lanyards on a ditty bag. I might get lost halfway through the worm wrestling but without your explanation I know I wouldn’t have a hope.

    • I do love a ditty bag, as it shows off your current skill set. I personally have four of them and I remember, after each one I said never again! Thanks for taking the time to post your comment.
