This design shows the versatility of the Long Two Bight Turk's Head and has been a favorite of mine for a while.
I finished off the lanyard by attaching a 1/2" D-Ring and small lobster clamp by using West Country Whipping to cover the splice.
The flashlight is straightforward if you have completed the lanyard, just tie a Long Two Bight Turk's Head and stretch the cord out to extend the opening. Make sure the end result is tightened so that no slippage will occur.
Stay tuned, I intend to place my own spin on the Long Two Bight Turk's Head tutorial and hopefully it will be easier for those who haven't been able to figure it out yet.
