And I thought for sure someone would ask how I got the cow hitch tied on the bight. Only one piece of cord.

You're very sneaky !

At first glance I didn't notice what you did, but as soon as I tried to tie it …. I got tangled up
I can sort of get bits of it ... but not quite !


Any clues ?

Going away and coming back to it helped. … although now I'm not sure it is right.
When its pulled tight it looks ok … but it slips too much.

Thanks.

My previous attempt was wrong, but I've got it now !
I still struggled after step 3. I'm not sure what I was doing, but I kept ending up with my original version (where the loop slips).

But this is good now (y)
