would this method also work for more number of strands than just 8? if i use 12 strands, can i just make 3 strands on each point, instead of 2?

If you wanted to use 12 strands, you would need to use 6 anchor points instead of 4. From there proceed as normal.

Hey Drac, thank you :)

Just completed a 16 plait in Paracord fir a flogger handle. Apart from a little wiggle in the plait and getting the first wrap around way too tight and having to put a bit of slack in the finish it, it looks good and is a great base to learn patterns. With paracord I think it would have been even easier if I had 8 permaloks to do the braiding :)

Hi SOS I know. I unfortunately didn't find out until I had posted, from another website. I didn't know the how or why or even the when. I felt terrible that it might come across as insensitive but I genuinely meant what I said and it is good to know his talent carries on as a legacy.
