Hey guys, I'm going to show you how to tie a Zeppelin Bend. It has no relation to the band Led Zeppelin, but it IS associated with a zeppelin, or blimp-- this is the kind of knot traditionally used to hold one down. A zeppelin bend, like any other bend, is a knot used to tie two lines together, ideally of a similar size. Here we go!
Step 1: Step One: Make a 6
Your working end is the end pointing up. Make sure it’s crossed UNDER your standing end.
Step 2: Step Two: Make a 9.
Your working end is the end pointing down. Make sure it’s crossed OVER your standing end.
Step 3: Step Three: Put the 6 Over the 9.
Step 4: Step Four: Over Over Under Under.
This is important. Take your working end of your 6, and pass it OVER the top two lines, and UNDER the bottom two.
Step 5: Step Five: Under Under Over Over.
This is also important. Take the working end of your 9, and pass it UNDER the bottom two lines and OVER the top two.
Step 6: Step Six: Pull It Tight.
