The double fisherman’s knot is a great knot to know if you need to tie two ropes together. Some kayakers even use this knot to create grab handles for their kayaks.

Step 1: Take both ends of the rope and lie them side by side. Each end should be facing the opposite direction.

Step 2: Wrap one end of the rope over the other line twice creating two loops. After forming the two loops take the same end and bring it through the two loops you just created.

Step 3: Pull the end of the rope and tighten one end of the knot.

Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 4 on the other end of the knot.
