Bowline knot (Rabbit hole & tree)
1. Form a small loop to make a ‘rabbit hole.’
2. Bring the end (rabbit) up to pass out of the hole (from the under side).
(If making a loop around an object, the object will be between the hole and the rabbit running out!)
3. The rabbit then runs around the tree (around the rope)…
4. …Then back down the rabbit hole.
5. Tighten the knot by pulling the rabbit down the hole whilst holding the tree. You can make the
loop in one end of the rope, in the middle, or around an object.
