How to Tie Survival Knots: Tying

The more you know how to tie different survival knots, the better.  It is much better to have a skill you don’t use, than to need what you don’t know.  Try tying with these step by step instructions.

Double Overhand Stopper

Best used as a stopper knot.

  1. Form loop in rope with standing end on bottom of loop
  2. Bring end of rope back up through the loop (rabbit out of its hole)
  3. Wrap it around and bring it back through again (2nd rabbit out of hole)
  4. Tighten

Alpine Butterfly Loop

Used to be loaded in either direction in the middle of a rope, unlike the directional loop that I showed in the figure 8 knots post.  It is used if the rope is to be used for multiple attachment points, like two climbers on both ends of the rope.

  1. Bring rope in front of hand
  2. Loop back behind hand and wrap in front of two middle fingers
  3. Loop back behind hand and down to bring it back in front of hand making an “X” with the two ends of rope.
  4. The loop on your fingertips, pull it down below the “X” and push it up underneath it.
  5. Take you hand out and tighten by pulling on the loop and two ends.

Clove Hitch

Used as a very quick hitch, but not to be used under too much strain because it will slip, or bind.

  1. Form a loop
  2. Form a 2nd identical loop and place it on top of the first loop
  3. Place the two loops on the object to be hitched
  4. Tighten
  5. Alternate for objects with no end: pass rope around it, and over the standing end.  Back around the object a second time and thread the end under itself and pull tight.

Bowline Knot and Water Bowline

Used often for mooring lines. It doesn’t slip or bind under load, but also it cannot be tied or untied with load on standing end.  Don’t use as a swimmer safety knot because it can easily untie when unloaded.

  1. Make a small loop with standing end on the bottom.
  2. Pass the end through the loop from the bottom (rabbit comes out of the hole)
  3. Go behind the standing end (rabbit goes behind the tree)
  4. Pass back through the small loop from the top
  5. Water bowline has two small identical loops placed on top of one another, like a clove hitch, but is the same basic steps.
