The Oysterman’s Stopper Knot, or Ashley’s Stopper Knot, is simple to tie, it is strong and bulky, and has a handsome threefold symmetry when looked from the underside. This knot creates a flat triangular shape that is thicker than most other knob knots.
To Tie an Oysterman’s Stopper Knot:
|Tie a Slip Noose, making a tuck through the loop.|
|Tuck the working end through the noose.|
|Pull the standing part to trap the running end with the loop.|
|As you tighten the knot, you should get the finished Oysterman’s Stopper.|
