Single Wall Knot

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

Unlay the end of a rope, and with the strand ‘a’, form a bight. Take the next strand ‘b’ round the end of ‘a’. Take the last strand ‘c’ round the end of ‘b’, and through the bight made by ‘a’. Haul the ends taut. This knot is for the purpose of forming a stopper, and to prevent the end of the rope from coming apart.
