The Cossack Knot is also known as the "Eskimo Bowline".   The June 2000 issue of the IGKT (International Guild of Knot Tyers) calls it a "more compact and secure alternative" to the common bowline.

Thanks Tony, this one is pretty easy for me and I might even remember it after a few times. 

This line is supposed to be useful for tying on a climbing harness and I think it will work well on my tree stand harness where I attach a line to the back and a carabiner to the end that snaps on the tree strap.
