The " 88 bend ", in its "simple" variation. ( "S88" bend )

P.S. 2011-10-30 : This bend is identical with the A10 bend, named "Dee bend", by Roger E. Miles : Symmetric bends. (How to Join Two Lengths of Cord), 1995.(p. 80, p.103)

This is not a knot.

Just a quick note for now about the form:

It's starting out with the "bend" version of the Grief Knot or Whatnot, and then tucks the free ends.

The result does have a familiar look.

Although the bights belonging to the final tucks stayed loose, as expected, the S88 bend was quite a bit harder to untie after heavy load than I would prefer.  However, the bend version of the Grief Knot (not recommended) remained easy to part after the same load.
