Your finishing stopper looks fine; it is seen in commercial fishing knotting
among other such multiples of Overhands (the Half-hitch is in a sense a
biased Overhand).  I think that the orientation that you have for the HH
(making a sort of Clove h.) is maybe the better one (vs. Cow-h.-like).

Did you try my suggestion to tie a Slip-knot (slipped Overhand) and then
bring the slip-bight around the <everything, i.p. the source/ball of cord>
and then pull it tight for a similar choking, bulk-inserting structure?  It
looks to me that that structure can tighten more (though this much might
not be needed or all so helpful), as the final bight-choke-tightening acts
like a claw hammer prying out a nail, in pulling out some of the cord.

By coincidence, there was a magazine (I forget now what, but some
unusual one -- more of a journal sort of interest, in a sense)
with an article about yurts, of all things, on the for-sale shelves at
the library, and . . .  voici:
