Knot Tying Instructions

Step 1 - Make a small, open, upside-down loop in your hand with one of the ropes. Make sure it loops up to the left, as shown in the picture.

Step 2 - Insert the end of the second rope up through the loop you just made.

Step 3 - Bring the end of the second rope around the back of the loop.

Step 4 - Open a loop between the two ropes as shown, and pull the end of the second rope though it. Pull to tighten!
