Introduction: Water Bottle Sling/carrier

This tutorial uses the bowline knot as base to make the jug or bottle sling knot.

The knot can be loosened and transferred from one bottle to another

Step 1:

I started with a 4' length of cord. 15" from the Working End bring said WE over itself.

Step 2:

Bring WE up through that loop leaving a 3" long bight

Step 3:

Bring WE under Standing End

Step 4:

and down through the loop

Step 5:

Bring WE over one strand of the bight

Step 6:

and under both strands of the bight

Step 7:

Bring WE Over one strand, under two and up parallel to the Standing End

Step 8:

Spread the original loop apart a bit

Step 9:

and slip it over the neck of the water bottle

Step 10:

Grab the small loop ion one hand and the two strands in the other and pull the knot TIGHT under the lip of the bottle

Step 11:

Tie the Working End end Standing End together as close as possible to the knot leaving a long bight opposite the original 3" bight

Step 12:

Put the long bight through the 3" bight

Step 13:

and bring it back over itself

Step 14:

Pull on the two strands of the bight so that the end of the long bight snugs down against the 3" bight. The result is a knot that will self adjust by sliding along itself

Step 15:
