Ok, I'm about to show my blondness...

I just watched Scott Martin's *NEW* video on the Donkey Rig (double fluke). He states that he is tying a palomar knot when he ties the swivel onto the mainline. That's fine, the swivel can go through the loop. But he mentions he ties a palomar on the other end too... How is that possible, when 'terminal tackle' is connected to a main line before the knot is tied? I can see it, if you tie it in reverse.

Am I missing a different way to tie a palomar?

Tie the swivel to the leader first.
Then swivel, leader and hook can be passed through loop of palomar.

I figured it was that simple and explains the cut-aways in the video. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.
