This knot will work on a rectangular shaped rod too. I chose to do it on a 1/2 inch thick steel throwing spike I made. A clove hitch is a great knot, it's a required Boy Scout knot and it the base for many lashings. Sorry about the shadows.

Step 2:

You could use any type of string but I'm using a scrap piece of paracord. First you take the string and drape it over the object

Step 3:
