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.
I'm aiming for knots that is secure, AND that is easy to untie.

... 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.)
