So I go a fun idea when I was on vacation.  I am going to be making a bracelet with some one of the souvenirs I got.(pics will come later)  I'm going to be starting this bracelet in the middle and working out to the ends.  I am going to be using the cobra knot (or square knot in hemp terms).  My only problem is that I want it to be tight when wearing it, but still be able to get it off.  In the store I've seen some nice looking sliding knots, but can't figure them out.
I've also been googling for some answers.  I've found two I'm considering, but more options is usually not a bad thing.

At first I was thinking something like http://www.how-to-make-jewelry.com/sliding-knot.html, only using one side as the middle and the other as the outer-pieces, instead of a new piece of string.
This is another I ran into that doesn't look too bad: http://www.handwork.org/chinese-knot/how-to-tie-a-sliding-button-knot.html

I'm going to have two strings per side when I'm done with the bracelet.

When in doubt, use more glue!

Look Ma, I'm on Ravelry!
