Hi Alan.

Very good video and thank you for doing the work to share it with us.

This knot is what brought me to awareness of the IGKT back in the day, as I could find no reference to it in any of my own wide ranging investigations. Dan Lehman eventually shared the source he had that I didn't know existed - Knotting Matters. This publication is widely unknown outside of the Guild and not truly in the public domain (shame).

I offered it with the unique name of the Scottknot (Grin) back when, but the name in the publication is the Double Loop Larks Head.

I make no claim to the final naming on it. So, that tag is up to you (or whomever decides these things).

BTW: My tying method is different than either of your two ways and the procedure in the pamphlet.

Thank you again.

SS

Hi All, Scott thanks for the reply.
         The sensation of creating something new it is a fantastic feeling, I enjoy every moment of the whole process of my work,
         not sure about other people, I just couldn't wait to share my work to the public. I wish Xarex is here to give me some answer.

        Scott, I have hard time follow words to tie a knot, what do it mean by (sans the rope it could go around,)?
        Show a few pictures how you tie the knot, will make life easy.

        谢谢 alanlee

Good day Alan.

Sorry that I did not explain in more ways than that, earlier in 2007. Sans equals without. What I had said was to tie a prusik knot without the rope that goes through it.
Any way, here are a couple of pictures that should add a visual explanation,, I hope.

I tie the coils in hand, then pull the outer coils through the center and tighten by working the loops, then pull the individual lines while holding the central nub. You'll see when you try the tie.
