I am trying to do a flat braid, plait or whatever.  I really don't know the proper name for it.  I need some instructions or direction please. I've tried a bunch of different slot and connector length combinations, but just can't seem to get the proper combination to make it look right.

Thanks in advance

Nope.. It's not a Mystery Braid. I've heard it called a Slotted Plait, Slotted Braid and a few others.  But nothing shows up on any of those search phrases

From your referenced picture, as I understand it, its also refered to as ... Blood knot  

YouTube - UK saddlery,  has a tutorial - entitled dog leash,  and another called laced reigns as I recall. using this braid.

 Hope this might help in your search ?
