Simple Simon Over
Now here's a knot I may actually remember how to tie in my lifetime. I've covered so many knots here, but I don't think I'd remember how to tie any of them if put on the spot. I think I can remember this one. It's easy and very strong. They say it's great for tying slick synthetic ropes. I guess that's because it's easy to tie and because it holds very well.
To tie this knot, I made a bight with the black rope and then took the working end of the orange rope and fed it into the black rope's bend, under the standing part and up and over the working end. Then, I fed it under the entire thing.
Then, I crossed the working end of the orange rope over itself.
With the working end of the orange rope, I continued around and under the black rope and through its loop.
To tighten this knot, I pulled the orange rope down into place and then dressed the knot.
