Although the half hitch is knot in its own right, it is rarely used alone as it is unsafe when used alone. Two half hitches can be use to tie a rope to a tree, boat or any object. It is often used in a supporting role, for example to increase the security of a primary knot.
Half Hitch Knot Tying Instructions
- Pass the end of a rope around the object and tie an overhand knot.
- For the Two Half Hitches, repeat with a second overhand knot in the same direction.
