opera knot

An alternative to the shoelace knot for tying a drape to a batten.
To tie an opera knot, place the webbing of the drape at the top of the batten, take the two legs of the tieline over the batten and bring each up on either side of the two, between the pipe and the webbing, sort of forming a "V," tie an overhand knot at the webbing, then a bow, just like a shoelace.
