Farmer's Loop

This knot is very useful when you want to make a loop in a rope. It is easy to untie. The farmer's loop is used much in the same way as the trucker's hitch is used. It can help tighten a load on a truck. The Farmer's loop is tied in the bight, that is, without the ends.

This is one of the simplest knots I know how to make. It's much easier to do than to figure out.

The loop is quite easy to get apart when you are finished using it.

I'm writing some articles about materials used in rope-making and made a Conparison of Rope materials used in boats.

I also have a page on rope-making with links to some good videos.
