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

I LOVE knots. As well as other things. I post random 'Ibles not even related to knots. Sorry if t...

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.

    all these knots are universally taught and known by the Boyscouts and are required in order to advance in ranks. i've been pasing this on to help teach my younger scouts proper knots and their uses.

    Nice work!

    If you keep posting them - I'll keep featuring them.

    More knots! More knots!
