    I use braided mason's line, but that is just what I happen to have. I think any line would do as long as it is able to be tied without loosening up or at least maintaining the friction you want after being tied.

    I made 2 different ones. I tried the soloman bar, and just didn't like the way mine came out. It was tight and worked, but I just didn't like the looks of it. The second one I made a series of over-hand knots, the first on the front, the second on the back, repeat. I finished it with a square knot, then melted the ends. I used Zing-it for both.

    Here are a few that I made with the overhand knot, the one at the bottom in the first and second pic are with the soloman bar, and so is the 3rd pic.
