Overhand Knot


The Overhand Knot is the simplest knot to tackle. It can be used in fishing, climbing, shoelaces, and making other knots. It can be seen as the backbone to other knots. This is often the first knot that young children learn to tie and it is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

How to Tie an Overhand Knot

  1. First you cross the end of the rope over the top of the remaining rope.
  2. Then you take the end of the rope up over behind the rope.
  3. Last you pull both ends to tighten the rope.
  4. Finally you have your overhand knot!
