Bowline: A Loop That Won't Slip
One of the most useful knots, the bowline fastens securely but can be untied quickly, even under tension. The loop created by this knot is handy for slipping over a nail in laying out almost anything with string, or for securing a rope to a fixed loop or ring. A bowline is useful for so many applications that many builders keep a bowline loop permanently at one end of their line.
Step 1: Make a single loop. Step 2: Pass the end through the loop, then around the standing part of the rope. Finally, pass the free end back through the loop and pull tight. Variation
You can use a bowline to attach a rope to a fixed loop or ring. Just feed the loop through the ring, then pull the rope through the loop and pull tight.
