Re: This knot was on the cover of PMI's catalog-know what it
Well it seems we were wrong. I emailed PMI and asked what it was. I got a reply pretty quick. They said it is a bowline with double overhand lock. It must be a double turn bowline. I tried it and shur-nuf it looked like the picture on the cover.
In the pic on their catalog, they did not show the ends or tails, so it would be impossible to tell whether it was a bowline with an extra turn or a sheet bend with an extra turn, they would both look exactly alike if the ends and/or the loop of the bowline was shown, and it wasn't.
So now we know for sure, glad you called them. I started to and figured they wouldn't know at this point.
What I show in the pic in the OP, looks exactly like their pic, but it's a sheet bend instead of a bowline.
