Bowline > Cossack > Kalmyk & K>C>B transformation



Thanks Ramos, your nice demonstration, proves that a topological correlation, is not only an exclusive privilege of TIB knots, it may also employ and some non-TIB profiles.

In decoding your movement, and if i was to provide a guideline about this transformation, i would summarize as follows :

1. Transform the bowline into its snap/rapid/marlin spike form.

2. Pull the on going eye leg to get the Cossak.

I assume that with the term Cossak, you mean the non-slipped form of Kalmyk.

I think that the anti-bowline also plays into this field, which is a Cossack with a twisted returning bight.
