Note about butterfly knot: I usually tie the
ties in this manner: Take both ties TOGETHER. Grasp them together
at the base. Make a loop with them together at the base, and pull
ends through. Push knot to base of ties (see picture below).
It is sort of a knot that resembles antennas. Works well for me.
