You could try to put a lighter oil in it!

There was Lighter oil in it when this happened, I was running 5W20 for the winter---- How would Lighter oil Stop a knock?

The reason engine is knocking is because it is not lubricated enough or you have a loose piston. And with the light oil it would make it easier for the oil to mix around and lubricate the engine
