Step 1:

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:

You'll then need to bring the one end of the string back under the object

Step 4:

You then take the end of the string you brought back to you over the other string and make them cross.(The photos explain it better)

Step 5:

You now need touring the end if the string so both lines are the same direction

Step 6:

You then bring the end that you've been moving through the center of it

Step 7:

Then pull it tight and your done! Feel free to comment and/or follow me.
<p>It looks almost like the constrictor knot. Is it the same knot, but just a different name?</p>
Thanks
very nice
