Help identify this bowline variant
« on: September 15, 2021, 07:32:50 AM »
Hi. I tied this knot a while ago, and as it's too simple to be a new invention, been wondering if it has a name or is documented anywhere. I checked the single-loop knots chapter twice and pretty sure it's not in ABoK. Do you guys recognize it/know its name?

Some sort of crossing point decoding, would be very helpful, for this knot recognition.

For example ` black dot = over  under? i have a clue, but need to be sure.

Sorry. Starting from the circle on the right, circles = under, dots = over.

Thanks for the clarification.

I think it's the same with this variant presented in the following topic....

https://igkt.net/sm/index.php?topic=7022.msg46382#msg46382

If we change the chirality of the nipping structure and omit the tail slipping, we get your knot design.

I'm not sure about its name.

Andreas presents it as a kalmyk alternative, but i see it as a single Karash bowline variant!

Either way, the tail slipping is a great invention for the tibness.

Yeah, and thanks for the identification, they are clearly the same knot. Cheers and good day!
