Slip Knot

How to tie the Slip Knot. This version of a slip knot is very quick and easy to tie. It is technically a “slip noose” and is made using the fisherman’s Uni Knot with just one or two turns. Another slip knot that makes a noose (hence its name) The Scaffold Knot is a good alternate to this simple slip knot.
