Hangman’s Noose Knot Instructions
- Make a Bite With Long End
Make sure to have your long working end to be at least 12 inches long. Take the long end and make a bite, then another bite in the opposite direction.
- Wrap Rope Around
Wrap the rope around away from the first bite you made.
- Continue Wrapping
You’re going to repeat step 2 until you wrap it around at least 7 times. Only a short portion of your long working end should be left.
- Pull To Tighten Knot
Only a short portion of your long working end should be left. Take the remaining couple of inches and feed it through the second bite. Then pull your loop to tighten the wraps.
After completing those steps, you now have a slip knot. You can pull one side of your loop to increase the radius of the loop. If you want less radius, just pull the rope on the opposite side of the noose.
Here’s the video tutorial.
This loop is easy to make and works well specifically for sailors and fishermen.
