How to Tie a Clove Hitch Knot. This is a small but versatile knot. It’s so versatile, in fact, that there’s more
than one way to tie it. Here’s the easiest. You will need A single length of rope Something
to hitch to such as a post pole and or ring. Step 1. Loop the end of the rope counterclockwise
around the object you are hitching to (let’s say a pole) and cross it over the remaining
length of rope. Step 2. Make another counterclockwise loop around
the pole, but this time pass the end of the rope through the loop you’ve just formed (between
the now two strands of rope looping around the pole). Step 3. Pull at both ends to tighten the knot. Did you know A hitch is a knot that is tied
to an object; a lashing knot ties two objects together.
