Creating realistic knot

Dear Experts,

I would like to create a realistic knot for a Christmas project. Do I have to rotate every single vertex or there is an easier way to lay down a tape?

Thank you for your advice.

Today you have to do it manually, here is a good one:
There may be an hidden way with the cloth brushes, dont know.

Could you use the sculpt mode’s pose brush?

Or you could try making geometry follow a path
