Introduction: Sheet Bend With Janine
Good morning, and/or afternoon, and/or evening everyone! I received a comment on a previous Instructable (https://www.instructables.com/id/Zeppelin-Bend-with...) that confused a Zeppelin Bend with a Sheet Bend, so I thought I'd share how to make a Sheet Bend with all of you!
A Sheet Bend, like any other bend, attaches two ropes to each other. A Sheet Bend is particularly useful because it's good for attaching ropes of two different sizes, and is super simple to make.
Step 1: Make a Bight.
Step 2: Under Over
Pass another rope up through the bight. It should go under the bottom line, and over the top.
Step 3: Behind the Back.
Pass the working end of your second rope back behind both ends of the bight, nearer towards the mouth.
Step 4: Through the Loop.
In the last step, you created a loop over the bight. Pass your working end through it.
Step 5: Pull It Tight.
