Single Strand Button Knots

This is one of my all-time favorite books: The Ashley Book Of Knots.
At almost 600 pages, it has every knot one could ever need plus practical applications for the mariner. We have used on numerous occasions and once made a pair of beckets for a sea chest.
We needed new lanyards for the lifeline gates, so I found two single line button knots, #601 and #787, and here is the result:
Mine looked just like the one in the book, except for the blood.
