Overhand Knot; Double Overhand Knot; Multiple Overhand Knot

The overhand knot is used as a stopper knot, and as the start to several other knots such as the fisherman's knot and the tape and water knots. The knot can be easily made larger by adding more turns. When the knot has one more turn it is called the double overhand knot. Additional turns give it the name multiple overhand. The knot can be made as large a necessary by adding additional turns within the loop. It is probably the fastest and easiest of all the climbing knots.

Sequence to Tie the Overhand Knot and Double Overhand Knot:

Overhand Knot 11.Make a loop, go over then under and through the loop.
Overhand Knot 22.Pull the knot tight working the rope. This is used as a stopper knot, and is used as the start of other knots such as the fisherman's knot. This is the finished overhand knot.

Sequence to Tie the Double Overhand Knot

Double Overhand 11.Make a loop, go over then under twice, then through the loop.
Double Overhand Knot 22.Pull the double overhand tight. Make sure the rope constricts evenly around the knot. This is also used as a stopper knot, and is used as the start of the double fisherman's knot.

Sequence to Tie Multiple Overhand Knot

Multiple Overhand Knot 11.Make a loop, go over then under several times. The more wraps inside the loop the larger the knot will become.
Multiple Overhand Knot 22.Pull the knot tight. Work the rope so the knot constricts evenly around itself. The knot can be made as large as desired by adding more turns within the loop. This is the completed multiple overhand knot.
