Any knot which works well is attractive,IMHO.


If you are still looking for a loop and like the bowline, consider the Tucked Bowline.

A fine knot! In climbing circles, that knot is known as a bowline with a Yosemite finish - the extra tuck along the standing part provides additional security against untying....
