We use the "water karabitsu" quite a bit during the year to haul feast gear and other items to SCA events. As a consequence the decorative cords I bought for it were getting a bit ratty. Luckily, I now know how to make nicer ones.
Both of these are made with a chunky acrylic yarn, so they won't mind getting wet, and are nice and soft. The rectangular braid uses that hira yatsu pattern. The round braid uses that old standby, the hira yatsu pattern, with a core of nylon rope, for strength.
