Category: Bend or Joining
Use a fisherman’s knot to join cords of equal diameter and similar construction, when lengthening lashings.
How to tie:
- Place the two lines together, working ends pointing in opposite directions.
- Tie an overhand knot in each, around the adjacent standing part.
- Tighten both knots, then pull them together.
- If necessary, the knots can be pulled apart by pulling on the working ends of each, making it easier to untie.
