Good use for short bits of cord The late Dan Callahan introduced me to this knot
Middle a length of cord and make a loop with the right hand strand
Bring the left hand strand up through the loop and down to the right . . . .
. . . . and up through the loop
Bring the same strand down and up through the loop
Bring the right hand strand around and up through the loop
Start the tightening process. Bight A will rest between the strands at a. Bight B will end up between the strands at b
As you tighten you will have to nudge bights into their proper spot
