Knot type recognition of a picture
« on: September 14, 2020, 12:01:21 PM »
Hello there, I have a couple of pictures of a knot which I wanted to know the type.
I would be grateful if somebody help me in recognizing type of the knot.

Good day AmirABody.

The knot you show is an end-to-end joining knot. One that joins the ends of rope(s). It is also called a Bend.
It looks like a couple of overhand knots followed with a overhand bend using both ropes parallel to each other, best I can tell from the poor photos.

you mean that we've got one overhand knot on each end of rope and then a subsequent overhand bend with both ends parallel with each other?!
Am I right?

I indicated that the two ends of the rope are tied as you would your shoelace (overhand knot), then tied that way again and afterward the ends are grabbed along side each other, ends pointing the same way and they are then tied in an overhand.

I would be grateful if somebody help me in recognizing type of the knot.
I'd like to know how long the tied-together
lines are?  (to help understand/figure how
the knot might've been tied)

The two ends come together and one makes
a trio of half-hitches around the other --one
might call that a "double clove hitch", the
clove = 2 and the +1 meriting the "double"
adjective,
then the two ends are joined in an overhand
knot --what would be an offset water knot,
but in this case the loading isn't *offset*
given the channeling of the ends via the
half-hitches.
Which hitches cannot be cast over the OWK
(for then they'd become overhands), but must
be tied more tediously --hence my top question!

Thanks

Thank you all for your helpful guides.
This is a picture of a surgical suture thread somehow which is approximately 40mm in length.
According to your guides, I've figured it out that there's a clove hitch at the beginning and an overhand bend at the end, but there's an unknown knot in the middle I have little doubt about the type whether it's a simple overhand knot or something else.
If you help me in recognizing the remaining middle knot, I would so much grateful.

Maybe we can all it a "thumb knot" vice "overhand bend"
which latter moniker can be construed sooo broadly!
As I previously remarked, the "middle knot" is just one more HHitch
as per the two in the Clove hitch; if you WANT a name, then replace
"CH" with "Builder's Hitch" which denotes this extra-turn
knot.
