Half Hitching

Half Hitching

Aplications : A simple way to tie long parcels, half-hitching is closely akin to marline hitching.Many people cannot tell the difference, but there is one. Half-hitching can be done without resort to the end of the string or cord used. (See also chain stitch lashing)

Method : Using a continuous line, start with a clove, rolling or timber hitch (see Killick Hitch, Clove Hitch, Rolling Hitch). Add as many hitches at suitable intervals as necessary. Either pass the working end around and through each time, or (with an inconveniently long line) simply slide underhand loops over the end of the bale or parcel as you go.Tie off as you like.
