The bowline knot is an ancient and simple knot used to form a fixed loop at the end of a rope. The great thing about the bowline is it is both easy to tie and untie. The bowline knot is also easy to untie after being subjected to a load and having been tightened even more. The bowline is sometimes referred as King of the knots because of its importance.
How to tie a bowline Knot
Lay the rope across your left hand with the free end hanging down. Form a small loop in the line in your hand (over the top of itself). This is the “hole”
Bring the free end up to and pass through the eye from the under side (the rabbit comes out of the hole).
Wrap the line around the standing line and back down through the loop (the rabbit goes around the tree and back down the hole).
Tighten the knot by pulling on free end while holding standing line
