    As you may be aware, to hitch originally meant to tie your horse to something, a hitching post.
    This is a place where cowboys or other banditos would tie their horses up outside of the tavern or bordello just before entering. So you could use this to tie up your dog or for tying something to a stick or a piece of wood.

    This noose is not going to come loose at all.
    And now we have a very good noose knot that we can use to hang on the end of something and still have the other end loose to do something else. Okay

Tie a Knot METHOD-9-9 Simple Noose Knot.mp4-canvas11 992618.jpg

Steps

  1. 1
    Stage one is to fold the rope round like this, see, so it curls around into a spiral.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    As you can see here, it curls into another little spiral as it is spiralling over itself.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    Next stage is to move this piece of rope (middle, close to the left) over on top of the other sections (the spirals).
    See now it's on top.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  5. 5
    Then, what we're going to do is we're going to push the top piece through this circle we've created.
    Tie a Knot METHOD-9-9 Simple Noose Knot.mp4-canvas55 278844.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  6. 6
    We're going to push the top piece through the circle.
    And as we do it, we're going to hold on to the two ends here; we're going to hold on to these ends (both the right and left ends).

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  7. 7
    Okay, now we don't want to pull it too tight yet because we don't know how big we need the noose to be.
    So if we keep pulling out on this (left) side and pulling out on this side, we can increase the size of the noose.

  8. 8
    Okay, and if we pull here (right side), we're going to tighten the noose.

    And then, if you needed to, you tie up this section; you tie it up to prevent - a simple knot here, and we'll show you some more knots - okay, this will tie it up so it could not come loose. Or we could use another knot depending on our needs.
