It took me quite a while to decode this knot structure, and i believe i have figured it out. Firstly, i had the impression that it was a double Eskino bowline, (anti-bowline), but that's clearly not the case.

Then, i recalled that Alan Lee had presented a bowline structure like this one, stabilized in a more conventional way, as a proper bowline (not eskimo).

So, this would be an Eskimo variation of the bowline presented here: Link: https://igkt.net/sm/index.php?topic=5383.msg36082#msg36082.

Very stable and secure structure, as the double coil nipping area firmly clamps the running end, but i would be sceptic to load it heavily in this Eskimo configuration.

Now, which one was published first, that i don't know.

Many thanks for the share!!

Thank you for the feedback.

The "Knotting Matters" article that described the little sister bowline was from 2007..
... and has both an issue # and page #s,
neatly cited in the form <kmNNN:NN>,
which I keep urging upon the editor(s)
vs. more cumbersome "Knotting Matters
#NNN, ... ".
