I too fooled with some rope. The closest I can get is pretty simple: taking a short length of rope, making one "overhand knot" to get a bite, then making a series of overhand knots in succession...using both working ends but in opposite directions so-to-speak. When you pull the ends, the series of overhand knots then coil together forming a nice barrel. However, it doesn't account for a complete loop as in the pic. Perhaps the rope is spliced, and the barrel an additional piece that has been used as whipping to cover the splice?
