The Two Half Hitch is the perfect knot for hanging a clothesline—or hammock—between two trees or posts.

Step 1: Pass end through ring
Pass the end of the rope up through the ring from below.

Step 2: Pass behind standing part
Pass it behind the remaining end—or 'standing part'—of the rope.

Step 3: Pass end through loop
Bring the end back up and pass it through the eye of the loop you've just formed.

Step 4: Pull tight
Pull it tight to complete a Half Hitch.

Step 5: Pass end through standing part
Pass the end of the rope behind the standing part again.

Step 6: Bring through 2nd loop & tighten
Bring it back up and through this second loop you've just formed (making a second Half Hitch) and tighten.
