This is a great little knot that's easy to tie. It's surprisingly secure too. All it takes is a few turns around the neck of your bag, a tuck, and you'll be all set. This knot can be tied with a draw loop or not. Both are good options. By using the draw loop though, you'll be making things a lot easier for you when it comes time to untie your knot. It's up to you though.
For this example, please pretend that my log is a bag. I didn't have one of those pretty canvas bags we see in the pictures, so I used the log instead. It's just as good though.
To tie this knot, I first made a bend around the log.
Then I made another bend, making sure I crossed the working end over the standing part.
After that, I took the working end and crossed it over the first cross.
And finally, I made a bight in the working end of the rope and tucked it under the very first bend. I pulled both ends of the rope to tighten.
