True Lover's Knot
This is a very handy knot to know if you need to make a loop of a certain size in your rope. Essentially, you would tie one Overhand knot in the rope to use as sort of a stopper and then tie another Overhand knot as another stopper. What you end up with is a fairly strong loop. This knot is handy for hanging items in your garage or attaching a hook to your fishing line.
To tie this knot, I first tied an Overhand knot about a foot from the end of my rope. Then, I fed the working end of the rope though the carabiner.
Then, I passed the working end through the loop in the Overhand knot.
After that, I tied another Overhand knot, but this time at the end of the working end. I made sure to tie this knot around the standing part.
And this is the final True Lover's knot after I tightened both knots and pulled them close to one another.
