Marlinspike seamanship

So you consider yourself to be a real salty sailor. You've studied Ashley's Book of Knots and have hundreds of the knots illustrated there memorized. You can even do that thrown bowline.  You don't have to look at the instructions to do an eye splice on double braid line.  Yup, you're a real marlinspike sailor.

Well then, here's a challenge for you, Salty:  Tie a knot that you can slide your foot into.  You won't find this in Ashley's.  But Jane is doing one right now:

Not in Ashley's
Not only is she doing it, but she's doing it in miniature, twice - these are destined for our 2 year-old granddaughter's feet...

Each of these is a single knot
