Picture of Slip Knot to Bowline Knot

A bowline is a wonderful knot. It doesn't slip in any direction. Isn't too complicated. And it usually is easy to untie, pulling down on the loop. So here is an easy way that doesn't use a rabbit.

Step 1: So you need to tie a Bowline Knot.

I learned the Bowline knot back in Scouting. You know the rabbit, the hole and running around the pole.

Then one day I was playing with some rope and realize one move would change a bowline into a slip knot!

So grab a bit of rope and try this!

That is called an Eskimo bowline. I ran across it in a book I still have somewhere.
