Highwayman's Hitch

Highwayman's Hitch

Aplications : A temporary tether for an animal or for mooring a boat, the highwayman's hitch may be tied in the bight of a middled rope, so that a long end is within reach to undo it again. This knot can be used to hold almost anything that will have to be released quickly or awkwardly (e.g., with one hand, or with the teeth, or from a distance).

Method : This is the ultimate in draw-loop knots, tied simply by making one loop on top of another (1-4).

History : There is no evidence to substantiate the reputation of the highwayman's hitch as a quick-get-away knot for robbers on horseback.
