Step 4: Push the Rope Through the Loop

    Push the rope on the other side through the loop.

Step 5: Go Around the Rope and Back In.

    Put the rope (the side that went through the loop) around the loose end of the rope with the loop. Then put it back through the loop.

Step 6: Pull It Tight

   Pull the rope tight.
