Default Re: Knot - It-Up

I've been using this knot for over 50 years without having a name for it. My father showed it to me.
It's very easy to tie in really cold weather (like now) when my fingers aren't really cooperating in anything complicated.
I do make one change though.
I tie an overhand 'stop knot' in the tag end and draw that stop knot down to the loop as I tighten it. It makes the whole thing slightly larger, but it will not pull out.
