Half Hitching



Introduction: Half Hitching

I used half hitching to cover the handle of the box I use to carry my net making supplies. I used it as well to cover the sheath for a knife. The hitching around the carabiner replaced a foam pad that was used to deaden the sound of metal hitting metal. As you can see there are no ends visible in the hitching around the carabiner
