Introduction: Part 1 of My Knot Series: the Overhand Knot

About: I LOVE knots. As well as other things. I post random 'Ibles not even related to knots. Sorry if there's a delay of when I post my instructables.

I am starting a knot series of how knows how many parts!
So, here I have  the Overhand Knot, the most basic knot.
This helps with lots of other knots so it is useful.

Step 1: Materials

-Rope, or paracord
-Hands

Step 2: Over and Under

Take one end of the rope and bring it over the other side of the rope to form a loop.
Pull it down under the rope then back over to the left and tighten.
