Mind Bending Exercise: The Jug Knot

I came across this discussion about the best way carry a water bottle, and thought the suggestion of using a Jug Knot was an especially clever solution.

Of course, I don't know how to tie the knot -- yet. There's all sorts of resources out there, to learn it though: a PDF, an Instructables, and of course YouTube.

I think it's going to take some practice, but I'll get it. Boy, does this bring back some pleasant memories of Scouts and learning to tie knots. (One handed bowline anyone? How about a dragon bowline?)

Personally, I love the original poster's parting words: it's much simpler than it looks, trust me .... You all can tie this knot.
