    It's very similar to another knot known a a monkey fist. Made with heavier line it could be used in threes as a bolo. Made with a stone in the center it could be the end of a heaving line. Nice instructable.

    I have used them as zipper pulls, at the end of a ceiling fan pull

    and in colored cordage as Christmas tree ornaments.
