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.
