Core is just another piece of leather strand. You'll be braiding around that with 8 more strings. Sequence is Under 2, Over 2.

Looks like an 8 plait round braid done over a core ending in a monkey's fist. core is a 4 or 6 plait depending on lace size. Does look to be a over 2, under 2.

Not really, some are OK, other's not so good. The narrated instruction is either lacking or the video is done by the same guy that does BigFoot's filming. The under 2 over 2 is a basic whip makers plait which can be found in a lot of braiding books. I've done a variation of this in a paracord stock whip with the monkey fist holding a golfball.. You can make a basic snake whip and then I did the monkey fist around the golf ball and attatched like you would attach the fall on a whip. Practice with paracord it is much cheaper to learn with. Most of my braiding (especially the whips I do) is done with the inner strands removed from the cord. Practice is the key. also don't be afraid to experiment. The whip shown is an adapted Australian style stock whip. If you have any specific questions message me and I'll try to get you in the right direction.

ok thanks I kind of figured it was a matter of finding some videos and practice, that is how I started with paracord bracelets.

@OLDNSLOWhere's a tutorial. He uses paracord but the technique is the same.i hope it helps

This looks like the 8 strand whip plait or herringbone as some refer to it as. It is under two over two (as knothead suggested) and not very difficult. The core being used is just a double over piece of lace as knothead said as well. The bit at the end is a three pass monkey fist(which will require a core of some kind)

There are other "stopper" knots you can do instead if you wish. Anything from the simpler Chinese button knot and diamond knot to a Matthew walker knot(one of my favorites). So if you want to simplify that part you can.

It looks like a.fun project. I hope you get it figured out.
