I would recommend the three stranded bastard turk's head. It is the easiest to tie, although you cannot expand it into coachwhipping like you can a running turk's head. Ashley has decent directions. btw, if you do not have the Ashley Book of Knots, you are surely missing out. It has been re-issued, after a long time out of print, and will guide you in everything from a bowline to a bow tie, or securing a packload on a burro. It's "the" book and belongs on every saailor's book shelf. It is a great antidote to cold winter nights, when the prospect of sailing seems but a dim memory.

It is a Turk's head, neither a knot or a hitch. It is more akin to a lashing, a permanent lashing.
The reason I know... I have made hundreds of them while I was in the Navy.
They were originally used to hold spares and masts together when they had developed a crack or a check. Been around for centuries. The lashings not me.

The turk's head, originally tied by Vasco de Gama on one of his voyages.
(stand by now, for ringing endorsement of turk's head and the advise to never, ever, use tape-from you know who!)
