Figure 4-25. Double bowline
e. Two Half Hitches. Two half hitches (Figure 4-26) are used when there is a need for a quick
way to tie a rope to a timber. Two half hitches are especially useful for securing the running end of a
rope to the standing part. If the two hitches are slid together along the standing part to form a single
knot, the knot becomes a clove hitch.
