Jib sheet knots

I can't seem to find the thread where I read about tying a knot unto a jib. I use a bowline having two seperate lines to the yankee, but someone told about just using a continuous line passing a loop at midpoint through the clew and then putting both or just one line through that loop. Not sure if it was both or just one line?? The reason for asking is that when I tack with my cutter rig the yankee will sometimes get hungup on the staysail baby stay. It's hanging up on the knots tied in the clew of the yankee and it seems like a continuous line will offer less area.
