Full Answer

  1. Place the rope around your items

    Place the rope around the items you want to secure together. Make sure the length of the rope is still long enough to fold over itself twice.

  2. Begin the knot

    Hold each end of the rope in each hand. Pass the right end under and over the left end. Pass it under the left end again. The right end of the rope is now in your left hand, and the left end is now in the right hand. Pull the ends lightly.

  3. Repeat the process

    Pass the original right end of the rope under and over the original left end of the rope. Pass it under the left end one more time. The right end is back in your right hand, and the left end is back in the left hand. Pull lightly to complete the knot.
