Rolling Hitch

Rolling Hitch

Applications: A close relation of the clove hitch, the rolling hitch attaches a cord to a rope for a lengthwise pull. For smooth rails or spars, consider using the icicle hitch .

Method : Begin as for the clove hitch (1) but take two adjacent diagonal turns on the side of the knot from which the pull will come (2-3). Take care to lock the second diagonal turn inside the first one, i.e., alongside the standing part of the line.

History : This knot was known in earlier days as Magner's hitch or the Magnus hitch.
