You Will Need
- A single length of rope
Make a loop by crossing one end of the rope—or "working end"—over the remaining rope—or "standing end."
Form smaller loop
Pass the working end horizontally behind the loop, forming a smaller loop at the base of the larger loop.
Poke end through small loop
Bring the working end around the front and poke it down through the smaller loop.
Pull the working end to tighten the knot, creating an adjustable loop. You're ready to snare.
