Learn how to tie knots with the classic knot tying techniques demonstrated in these Howcast videos.
You Will Need
- A single length of rope
- Something to hitch to
- such as a post
- or ring
Loop the end of the rope counterclockwise around the object you are hitching to (let's say a pole) and cross it over the remaining length of rope.
Make another loop
Make another counterclockwise loop around the pole, but this time pass the end of the rope through the loop you've just formed (between the now two strands of rope looping around the pole).
Pull at both ends to tighten the knot.
