Starting with baby steps I got this far. Discovered that using a section of rubber hose for practice isn't ideal due to the higher friction. Need to use a smooth non-friction surface to make the loops equal and be able to snug the knot
tight. It's been raining and the cockpit
isn't the coziest spot to be, so I am down below, away from the wheel
Tomorrow, a 3L version!
Found lots of inspiration at Paracord Guild, videos on Youtube.
Will also go back and practice the Alpine Butterfly Bend. In my haste today, used a sheetbend just because I was in a hurry. Need to really make it one of those knots that I can do with my eyes closed.
This is kinda fun!
