Introduction: How to Tie: Stevedore's Knot

The Stevedore's Knot is a type of Loop used to create a bulk in a line to prevent the rope from passing through holes.

Step 1:

Begin with your rope lying flat on the table with the live end above the dead end.

Step 2:

Bring the live end over the dead end.

Step 3:

Bring the live end under and around the dead end.

Make sure your knot's bight is staying still and not unraveling!

Step 4:

Bring the live end over the dead end once more.

Step 5:

Now take the live end back under and around the dead end.

Step 6:

Take your live end over the twists and through the loop.

Step 7:

Tighten it up!

Congrats! You're done!
