Default greens loop

I would like to thank Rip Tide for his posts on greens loop(more knots). I have been tying knots to improve it. A small, easy to tie, adjustable loop size, good strength knot. I have a change that makes it better. The way I tie it.
1. Tie an open overhand knot
2. Poke the tag end through the hook eye
3. Pinch the hook and the crossover point of the knot with the right hand and poke the tag end through the opening opposite the standing line with the left hand
4. Pinch the hook and the knot with the left hand. Cross the standing line on the side away from the opening with the tag end. Pinch the cross with the right hand and poke the tag end back through the opening opposite the first time(tag exits the same side as the standing line)
5. Pull the tag end and the standing line to adjust loop size
6. Pull on hook and the standing line to tighten

I think step 4. should have read , cross the standing line with the tag end on the opposite side if you cross it on the same side you ondo step 3.
