Bowline

A simple knot used to form a fixed loop at the end of a rope. Often considered one of the essential knots. Bowline knot can be used to tie on to harness and is often used when working on routes as it is easy to untie after taking lot of falls. Easy way of remembering how to tie the Bowline is: the rabbit comes out of the hole goes around the tree and back into the hole.

Start with a loop 

 

Out, around and in 

 

 Always use the stopper knot to finish the Bowline knot.
