    Question Need help! What knot is this?!

    Okay so I'm getting a new tarp and I'm trying to set up my doors and I need to know what knot this is. I forgot what is called and how to do it. Would really appreciate if someone could help me out. 16139557714153477057234609505389.jpg16139556924942766735295301580858.jpg

    Need help! What knot is this?!

    If no one identifies this knot, maybe you can loosen knot without undoing it. Then another photo can show more detail.
    The good new is, there are lots of knots that can give similar results.
    If your knot is a fixed loop, you can use many good knots:
    Alpine butterfly loop
    Over hand knot on a bight
    Figure eight on a bight
    Various bowlines
    And more!

    Could your knot be ABOK 1018?
    Ashley Book Of Knots number 1018 is called
    Department-Store Loop described as not a particularly strong knot.

    If you loosen your knot, but do not untie it, you can most likely duplicate it by looking back and forth between knot you are making and the original.
    Good luck

    That looks a lot like a "sheet bend" with an overhand stopper knot tied on the end of that one line. Is that a loop of stretchy line? The sheet bend will roll over on itself sometimes and not (PUN alert!) look exactly like the picture, but take a look here: https://www.animatedknots.com/sheet-bend-knot

    It almost looks like a Canadian Jam knot, but it's hard to tell from just one angle.

    Looks like a buntline hitch with an overhand as a stopper knot on the tag end.

    This is the same basic knot, by description. I usually tie the slippery version of this hitch as a non-load bearing anchor hitch.

    The buntline hitch will "slip" on the standing end of the line. The OPs knot looks like it will not slip, but it is hard to tell.
