Here's a close up of the knot. and the buried tail.
1) I have the loop burried for it to cinch up on nice and clean.
2) Immediately after the bury I start the lanyard knot and gently finnesse it down to the exit of the burry. In messing ith this it sometimes pulled the buried line and altering the loop on the other side. so I use a small vice clamp (set just firm enough to keep the line from sliding through) and clamp right behind the exit point. This really allows me to yank and pull on the elements of the knot without worrying about messing up the loop behind it.
3) Once the knot is situated I bury one tail through the other.
4) (Not pictured, and still perfecting) I then take some kevlar thread and whip about 1/3" of the combined tail nice and tight. Beyond the whipping by 1/4" I cut the tail and trim it up nicely then fluff up the fibers like a cotton ball
Nice. I make mine the same way.
