Note that Wikipedia has hundreds of knots and huge amount of knot theory. This page used to be nothing but a copy of that knot theory page. Other resources are listed below.

Constrictor Knot

Shortcut:
Constrictor Knot

See The Ashley Book of Knots # 1188, p. 216. Grog notes: "The Constrictor Knot deserves to be much more widely known and used. It is an excellent quick temporary whipping for a fraying rope's end. It securely ties the neck of a sack or bag, and I have often used it to hold items together for gluing."
