Double Fisherman's Knot

Also known as the Grapevine Knot, the Double Overhand Knot is commonly used to tie two ropes of different diameters. As the namne suggests, this knot involves tying two Fisherman's Knots on the ropes. Let our animation guide you in learning how to tie a Double Fisherman's Knot.

Step 1:
Get the first rope and make a complete turn on the second rope.

Step 2:
Make another turn and then pass the working end of the first rope through the two loops.

Step 3:

Pull to tighten.

Step 4:
Repeat Steps 1 to 3 but this time, use the second rope in tying the knot on the other side.

Can this knot be used to tie two ropes together of the same diameter to be used for repelling?

don''t use this for repelling. very bad idea. figure of eight in the end of the first rope and the end of the second rope threaded through then a stopper on both tails. or a double eight on one rope and a single on the other same principle except you have a loop to clip a cowstail into when switching ropes
