Sheet Bend: Tying Lines Together
Think of a sheet bend as the perfect rope-extension knot. A sheet bend is strong, easy to tie and untie, and especially useful if you're using lines of different thicknesses. Step 1: Make a bend in the end of the thicker rope. Pull the end of the thinner rope through the loop. Step 2: Wrap the end of the thinner rope under both pieces of the thicker rope, making a loop in the thinner rope. Pull the standing parts of the two ropes in opposite directions until tight. Variation
A doubled sheet bend (two wraps around the thicker rope in Step 2) can hold even slippery nylon rope.
