Grasp the bight with the right hand; fold it back over the overhand knot so that the overhand knot goes through the bight.
From the end (apex) of the bight, follow the bight back to where it forms the cross in the overhand knot. Grasp the two ropes that run down and outward and pull up, forming two loops.
Pull the two ropes out of the overhand knot and dress the knot down. A final dress is required: grasp the ends of the two fixed loops and pull, spreading them apart to ensure the loops do not slip.
