Eskimo Bowline

 

The Eskimo bowline is a knot that places a loop in the end of a rope. Whereas the standard bowline knot loops the working end around the standing part, the Eskimo bowline loops it around its own descending part. Quickly and easily tied, this unorthodox bowline is more secure and may be used in situatoins where the regular knot would shake loose and spill.

To Tie an Eskimo Bowline:

Begin as if for an Overhand Knot, but then interweave the working end over-under-over.

Pull on the two knot parts indicated to transform the knot like shown when a sort of bowline-on-it's-side results.

Tighten it and a compact tricorn button knot appears.
