Word "knot" mainly used for tie, "untie" suits the best.

Could you lucidly explain kirtan?

Word "knot" means tie. So the alternative meaning for open is untie.

Why can't we say Loose the knot?

Suppose he means only loosing it not untieing it completely.

Knot can be tied or untied.
It can't be open or close so, It's untie.

Knots cloud mean bolts too, which would be loosened to open.
