Many are also components of other knots or they provide the underlying structure. The Square Knot (Reef Knot) and Sheet Bend are the two basic methods of joining two ropes; and the Figure 8.   This knot, also known as the uni-to-uni knot, is ideal for attaching two lines of varying thickness, such as attaching a fluorocarbon leader directly to braided line. Braid main line (top/black) Fluoro leader (bottom/white) 2 Make 4 to 6 wraps. 3 Tighten neatly without twisting the line. 4 Repeat the first three steps, wrapping the braided line.

  3. The whole French knot pulls through to the back of the fabric as you end the stitch. 4. The knot is too small and tight. If you follow the tips below, you’ll avoid these difficulties and your knots will turn out great! As with any stitch (or pretty much any endeavor!), practice is the key. Then, bring the working end behind the standing side, around it, and back down through the loops. Dress the knot by pulling on the two strands that come through the loops and the standing side at the same time. Pull all four strands tight individually. Finish by tying a double overhand knot against the double bowline. Climbing Knots on a BightAuthor: REI Staff.
