is a little long (two or three parts) but actually shows a very clear step by step version of what you're talking about, I believe. I had found this on the Colligo Marine website while looking for info about soft shackles, and tossed it in my bookmarks (they are actually embedded on the Colligo Marine site as sidebar tutorials) but sorta forgot about it. When I first started splicing (I say that like it wasn't just
a month ago) I tried one, but it didn't look as nice as the brummel using both ends pulled through. Then again, I think it was the second splice I ever tried, so that may have had something to do with it.
