Introduction: Bowline Knot
This instructable will teach you how to tie a bowline knot. The bowline (pronounced Bo Lin) creates a secure loop that does not bind or slip when weight is applied, unlike a noose. It can be used for many different things, especially rescuing people from drowning. If someone throws you a rope to rescue you, tie this knot around your torso.

Under no circumstances should any knot, loop, noose, or other length of rope be attached to ones neck as it could cause injuries or death. I take no responsibility for any injuries.
