The sheet bend is an essential knot to know. It is used to join 2 ropes together (even if they are different thicknesses). For additional security, a double sheet bend knot is a better option. This knot is an old “sailor’s knot” when they used to tie ropes to sails (sheets). This knot is one of the most important ones to know because having a little bit longer rope is never a bad thing.
how to tie it
Form a loop in the end of one rope.
Pass the free end of the rope to be joined under the opening of the loop, around both parts of the first rope and back under itself.
Pull all four ends to tighten.
Two wraps around both parts of the first rope make a double sheet bend.
