Just make a bight, like you're starting a sheet bend, and weave the other rope through it.

If you tied this knot, but instead of leading the end back through the loop on the right, like a reef knot, you lead it under the incoming line, like a sheet bend, what is it called?

This knot was first presented by Asher in his _A New System of Knotting_,
