Friendship knot loop

|Names||Friendship knot loop, Chinese crown knot loop, Slipped friendship knot loop, Sliding Chinese crown knot loop|
Friendship knot loop is a knot to tie a secure and stable loop at the end of a rope.
The slipped version where the last move is done with a bight of the end, rather than with the end itself, is one that can be tightened flat, slid, locked (like a belt buckle), and then untied quickly (like when nature calls) with an exploding pop. If not tightened flat, this Slipped friendship knot loop collapses into a cube and will neither slide nor pop. 
Like tying a Friendship knot, except that it is tied to the ropes own end, coming back from forming the loop.
