Basic Knots

Double Half Hitch

This knot is also called a round turn and two half hitches, or two half hitches. It can be used to attach a line to a beam or pole. It moors boats much more securely than a clove hitch.

This is a simple knot to tie; pass the line twice around a pole, and then finish by tying two half hitches around the standing part of the line. A half hitch is the knot most people use to tie a parcel.
