Marlinespike - Hitches - Clove Hitch
Used to temporarily tie to a piling, this knot can come loose. You may add a couple of half hitches to make it more permanent. This knot is simply two loops with an end tucked under.
|If you can reach the top of the piling, an alternative way to tie a clove hitch is to follow the instructions below and then slip the loop over the piling and tighten.|
