    The double overhand knot shown in the upper photo makes a fine stopper knot.
    The mystery double hand knot (It might have a proper name) is shown in the lower photo. Obverse and reverse views.
    Can you knot tyers duplicate it?

    Thank you. It is not a matter of skill but of knowing the hints to tie the knot. I was taught by a master. Here is the solution

    mystery double overhand knot solution

    If the link does not work go the the "Pineapple Knot Forum".
    In the Knotical Miscellaneous ssection near the bottom of the page click on Knotical Potpourri and you will see how to tie the knot. Tony

    triple overhand knot
    After a few dozen attempts I was able to add a third overhand knot. I have not been able to duplicate this accomplishment.
