Hi Instructables Community,
first of all thanks to all of you who have read, liked and commented on my first Quick Skills Instructable from last week. Another big thank you to all of you have spotted mistakes in the first part and made suggestions for the second part. I have taken additional care with this project and hope that the knots are all correctly tied & described. If you find mistakes or have suggestions for part 3 feel free to post them in the comments
Take care, stay safe
The bowline is a relatively secure knot that creates a fixed loop in the end of a rope.
This knot is simple to tie, it does not slip or bind when under load. It can be tied with a single hand and untied when no load (tension) is applied to the rope. It is also possible to link two bowlines to join two ropes.
When not under load the bowline knot can shake loose which is why the bowline should be used with a safety knot such as a double overhand knot for critical uses.
