Double Overhand Knot

Category: Stopper knot

How to tie:

  • Tie an overhand knot.
  • Pass the end through the loop again to make a second overhand knot.
  • Gently pull on both ends until knot tightens.

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.
