Tested this one with a cheap shoe lace - w/o core (may not matter).

First dressed by pulling the loop and standing end opposite way, gave somthing not looking like a bowline shaped knot (just from my visual perspective at the time).
But it turns out that ring loading the loop make the whole structure to flip/collapse so that it form a triangle shaped knot.

That's probably because my rope is much softer than yours.

... which is an extension, further tucking,
of #1033, is it?  (I just shortened this extension
by making a bowline-like collar with a sooner
final tucking of the tail.)
