A variation of the Hunter s bend.
« on: September 19, 2010, 05:36:52 PM »
   A variation of the Hunter s bend, the "twisted Hunter s bend".
   It comes in two similar forms. In the second one, the tails are crossed before they exit the knot s nub.

P.S. 2011-10-30 : The 2nd variation of this bend is identical with the B 12 bend, named "Crossover bend", by Roger E. Miles : Symmetric bends. (How to Join Two Lengths of Cord), 1995.(p. 89, p.110)

This is not a knot.

... which both are tedious and less material-/tying-efficient structures
than making Derek's "Myrtle" with double turns in both parts (or maybe
bettrer the Dan's "Anti-bowline" so doubled).  Just don't be wanting
to untie the thing!
