How to Tie the Bowline Bend
If you know a few knots, then I would have thought that the Bowline is one of the knots that you learnt at a very early stage? The wonderful thing about the Bowline is that it is a relatively easy loop knot to tie. It is also fairly easy to untie, even if the Bowline has been under stress. Also for additional security there are tie off’s that like the Yosemite and Ampersand. So therefore, there is no reason that two Bowlines cannot be joined to make a great bend.
