On today’s Knot of the Week I’ll be showing how to tie a Crown Sinnet with a few different variations, which relate to the way it’s started or finished.
While it makes an interesting keychain for decorative purposes, the Crown Sinnet also serves a practical application as a lanyard pull on anything from the finish on a paracord knife wrapping, to a lanyard release-pull shown in the photo above.
(Strength: 5/Secure: 4/Stability: 4/Difficulty: 4/) See below for what these ratings mean.
Each knot will be assigned a rating from 1-5 (1 representing the lowest score) based on the following four properties:
Strength – All knots will weaken the strength of a rope, however, there are knots that are stronger than others. The scale here will reflect how strong the rope remains with the specified knot.
Security – The security scale refers to how well the knot will stay tied, and resist coming loose under a normal load.
Stability – Stability refers to how easily the knot will come untied under an abnormal load (i.e. the knot being pulled in a direction it was not intended to) A lower score here represents instability.
Difficulty – The lower the number, the easier a knot is to tie.
