    Gosh, thank you for correcting me, PD! You'd think I never did macrame! Had I looked up a photo of half hitch and double half hitch, I'd have realized my error right away! I'll edit the previous post, too.

    I suspect you were thinking of larkshead knots, but I don't use those either. They look too asymmetrical to me.

    I had to go online and look up the knots lol I always thought I was tying an overhand when finishing but now I think it's a double half hitch ? lol Now I'm off to read up on larks head knots !

    And who knew there is an International Guild of Knot Tyers Forum ???

    And while on the subject of knots.. can someone explain the knot that Kevin shows on POJ as the pearl knot he uses as for the life of me I cannot figure it out. I do have a terrible time with this sort of drawing .. knots etc .. I really need to see something on video.

    Sorry ! I wasn’t clear . It’s not a video it’s a drawing of the knot used . And of course now I can’t find it . I’ll keep searching , I just saw it again last week and was trying to figure out how the knot was tied as it didn’t look like half hitches ...but again ..I’m terrible with this sort of spacial challenge ��

    I think it's a double overhand knot. I use this knot when there is a larger than normal drill hole that I'm afraid the regular overhand knot will get lost inside.
