Game carrier...how do I finish this?

Postby brazosdog02 » Fri Dec 20, 2013 10:28 am

So, I finished a call lanyard with not problem, the ends come together and you braid them and all it well. However, with the carrier, I have the cobra stitch OK, and I have the ends hanging out that will have loops on them, but Im not sure how to 'finish' the end of the cobra stitch. Is there a particular knot I should use to hold it all together? Ideas?

Is this a over the neck kind or single side kind?

Nope, just the kind you hand carry. This is the idea:

Found it online.

Some lash it somehow, and some just kind of stop and cut the stitching piece short. Not sure exactly though.

Well you could sacrifice the two outside strands and reverse them into the stich for acouple then burn and Smash.I make them alittle different then how you do and for me 4 neck drops work fine.Image

Had not considered that. I like that. I know there are more than a few ways to do it, but since this is pretty much the only braiding I have ever done in my life, I don't know the ins and outs.

Thanks!

Your welcome, some pro's I see in a single sided one is how they save room compared to a double but they still can carry all the ducks I need.I want to make a over the neck one to try it.
