How about a nail knot tool, I have one of the cheap stainless steel jobbies and it is big enough to hold and work with, I find, although they do one with an attached zinger so as you don't drop it.
There is a tubular brass nail knot tool as well. Both on Amazon.
Oh! there is also a posh cinch knot tool that has been updated for other knots and tasks.

Apologies! I misunderstood all I have in that department is a Magnifeye Hook Threader from Australia, once ordered it was pretty quick given the distance.
The other that could tie hooks perhaps is the cinch knot tool.

I have 1/2 of a WD-40 straw that suffices for a nail knot tool and a blood knot tool. Works great for both - I can whip out a nail knot in a few seconds. A blood knot still takes me a bit of time, but I use a method I saw online with a guy using a match.

You could always try a straightforward Figure 8 knot. Just give yourself plenty of room to form the loop and pull the ends through.

This is what your looking for, no doubt in my mind.

That is a version of a suture knot being tied using straight forceps in that video.

I've had that many sutures over the decades that I recogised it instantly.
