Introduction: Tie a Bowline

I have made this Instructable to go hand in hand with this Instructable to prove that yes, a picture is worth a thousand words, but a good picture is worth far more.

So this is simply just a pictorial Instructable with nearly no words.

Step 1: Make a Loop


Step 2: The Rabbit Comes Up Throught the Hole

I could never understand the whole " the rabbit..." instruction. It wasn't until I saw how it was done without verbal instructions that I actually understood it. Oh and twenty years under the bridge.

Step 3: ...you Get the Picture


Step 4: Start to Dress the Knot


Step 5: Now It Looks Like a Knot!

another thing when using in situations where safety is important (climbing or over head lifting) a keeper knot is recommended.

The rabbit comes out of the hole, around the tree and back into the hole.

The bowline is invaluble knot when done properly (as shown), I use it daily in my work strong, safe, easy to untie, I use it to haul items and cable hundreds of feet in the air with no issues.

The bowline tied improperly (an outside bowline where the tail lies on the outside of the knot) has a leaning to unrolling going over an edge, It is important to keep it tied properly!

Good job, nice instructable.
