Use two half-hitches to tie a rope to a tree, ring or dock. Two half-hitches are commonly used to tie guy lines onto a dining fly. Here’s how to tie this knot.

  • Pass the running end of the rope around the post or through the grommet.
  • Bring the end over and around the standing part of the rope, then back through the loop that has formed. This makes a half-hitch.
  • Continue taking the end around the standing part to tie another half-hitch (this time outside the loop). Be sure to go around the standing part in the same direction.
  • Pull the knot snug and slide it against the pole or grommet.
