It's a square knot.  Here's a link to see how it's done Smiley

Finally my macrame class pays off- only 27 years later Smiley

Those are cute! I've been seeing a lot like that done in paracord for military spouses/kids.

If you're in the US, most places call that plastic stuff "lanyard." You can get it at just about any craft store (look in the kids' crafts section), and sometimes even at the dollar store. I've never heard it called Scoubidou, but that's a much more fun name!

Oh! The plasticy-stuff you can get at Michael's or Joann's craft store. I don't know what part of the country you are in...or you may live elsewhere Undecided  Used to make those little long keychains with them when I was young.

^^great!!! Thank you so so much!!! I was just wondering how can i hide the end knot? Like the picture, both ends are connected to the chain without ending knots and it looked seamless. Does anyone know how to do that? Smiley

And what do you think is the plastic-y material used for the knots?

Looks like gimp, and I bet the ends are just threaded back into the bracelet a ways to finish off the end-loops.
