Well, ok, it’s actually a knotty question… but the title got you here, didn’t it?
About four years ago I was playing around with some knots in a short length of rope I use for practicing. I came up with what I think is a new knot, as I haven’t seen any reference to this, even in the Ashley Book of Knots to the best of my recollection. I’m putting it out here because I know there are a bunch of you that are also very knotty and might give me some idea as to whether this is unique. If it is, then what? Is there some kind of “knot registry”?
Try it out yourself. It seems to hold very well and I remember it releasing without jamming. Other than that I have no reason to recommend this over any other accepted fixed loop.
Thanks for any hints you can give.
