Knots: Extension Lanyard

Hi folks!

I recently purchased a new (to me) boat and have discovered that I need to lengthen the lifelines as they are too taught and the lower lifeline actually interferes with the operation of my winches. The previous owner tied four very strong and nicely dressed (extension) knots on the bow pulpit. I need to do the same for the lower lifeline in order to extend its length by about 8-10" so I can move the line outboard and out of the way of the winches.

Anyone have any suggestions on what type of knot or lanyard to use for this? New lifelines are (I am afraid) out of the question for this season. I need this extension to be both strong and attractive.
