Hello Y'all, I'd like to bring these eyes for investigation (I like fig. 2 & 3). Many thanks, Ramos

Yes, Ramos.
Interesting coincidence, I tried doing this sort of thing
with a series of famliar knots, including the clove hitch
--of making what I call a "nipping turn" with the SPart
through the hitch.
There are all sorts of knots that can work, in terms of
holding; some are better in some materials and for some
purposes.

Hello Dan, many thanks for your kind reply. I think Pic. 1 it's no good. Pic. 2  it's strong but difficult to untie Pic. 3 If it is tightened, it will be almost impossible to untie.
