A double fishermans knot is used to join two ends of cord. Is a double fishermans knot the two knots together, so that one knot on its own would be a single fishermans? Or is a single fishermans the same knot but tied with only one wind round the rope rather than a twin wind round the rope?
Settle an argument.

Single fisherman's is the same knot on two ends of cord with one wind. It's used by fishermen to tie bits of line together.

Pretty sure it's the latter. The knot on it's own is a double overhand if I recall correctly (but I am bad with names of things).

The latter. Otherwise, triple Fisherman's knot would look strange!
