A cleat is not called a cleat knot, but "turning a cleat". The interest of this blocking is that it can be done under tension and even release itself under tension. The dead turn at the beginning is essential to ensure a good hold in the cleat.
Start with a complete dead lap (emphasis on "complete")
We then cross in eights (one crossing is enough).
No need to multiply crossbreeding, the holding will not be improved.
Make a final half-key.
For a good efficiency, the half key must be in the direction of the crossing (it is also better for the aesthetics...).
The mooring is efficient and solid.
