True Lover's Knot
How to tie the True Lover's Knot (aka True Lovers Loop). The name of this knot derives from the two intertwined overhand knots, which symbolize a binding love between two people. The knot can be tied as shown here with a single rope or cord to form a handy loop at the end for attaching anything from a whistle, car keys or anything else that one might hang from a lanyard. The True Lover's Knot can also be used to connect two separate ropes, though it is not the best knot to use for that purpose (see section on Bends for better choices).
See the animated True Lover's Knot below the knot tying tutorial.
