The Sheet Bend and Double Sheet Bend Knot

User Rating:  / 0



The Sheet Bend Knot is for joining two ropes of unequal size but works equally well if the ropes are of the same size.

When the ropes are very different in size, the tail of the smaller rope can be taken twice round the bight in the larger rope to create the double sheet bend.

It will tend to loosen and untie if it is not under load.
