Used to attach a rope to an object.
Can be used as a simple binding knot.
Worked-up and dressed properly, it is more secure than the simpler clove hitch and has less tendency to jam,
but does not respond well to swinging.
Ground-line hitch, Picket-line hitch, Miller’s knot, Sack knot, Bag knot.
1. Make a turn around the object and bring the working end back over the standing part.
2. Continue around behind the object.
