Your decorative knotwork never ceases to enthrall & amaze me and I always enjoy viewing it, but the lowly Ashley Stopper Knot or Oysterman's Knot has never failed to serve me well as a tri-lobed and very symmetrical stopper when I needed one......

Nice knots AS.  You're an artist with that cordage.
