Alpineer,
I was able to catch your attention with the sax ligature, but, I see, you don't like the Yoke hitch! (I insist, please, try to tie the slipped version!)
About the sax ligature, the german string ligature and the whipping work (maybe they are a little bit more string consuming), but I'm a knot tyer ;) and I like to use other methods, (by the way, I usually use a metal ligature).
bye,
s.

Hi all,
I often tie a 2 wraps Yoke Hitch with a Bowline at one end, but if you want to adjust the Yoke mechanism you can use an Adjustable Yoke Hitch (3 wraps!). Please look at the attached pictures and try to tie the hitch!
(Please notice that in order to tighten the Hitch you have to break the simmetry of the 2 tackles in the AdjYoke_tying.jpg pictures)
ciao,
s.
p.s. Thanks to Xarax (for pictures, ideas...)

Has anyone noticed that the previous hitch is TIB!
In the attached pictures (AdjYoke_3wraps_TIB.jpg) the TIB method...
I've left the TIBness out for a moment and, mixing the mechanism of an adjustable loop (the Honda Knot, ABoK #1024) and the mechanism of the Adjustable Yoke Hitch, I've tied a 2 wraps Adjustable Yoke Hitch!  8) :)
I will add some pictures later...think about it! ;)
Ciao,
s.

Please notice that if you want to untie it, you should use the slipped version (frame bottom right in the picture).

Ever try these hitches on something not so slippery
smooth as photos show?  --much can change, w/friction!
