Double Overhand Knot
The Double Overhand Knot
is simply a logical extension of the regular overhand knot, made with one additional pass. The result is slightly larger and more difficult to untie. It forms the first part of the surgeon’s knot and both sides of a double fisherman’s knot. The strangle knot is a rearranged double overhand knot made around an object. It is sometimes used to secure items to posts.
Tying the Double Overhand Knot
Form a loop in the rope, and then pass the end through it. Pass the end through the loop once again, and then tighten the knot to make a secure stopper knot.
Uses for the Double Overhand Knot
The Double Overhand Knot is based on the Overhand Knot with an additional turn. It creates a reliable, moderately large, stopper knot but can also be used to increase the security of another knot, such as the Bowline Knot
