Double sheet bend

Use the pause button and play button to display intermediate steps.

Use two ropes.
Make loop in one of the ropes.
Bring other rope up.
Bring it around the loop.
Then tuck under.
Bring rope around again.
Tuck under again.
Pull ends to tighten.

The double sheet bend is used where there is a difference in the thicknesses of the ropes to tie the knot. It can also be used on similar ropes for extra strength.
