How do you tie a slip knot?

Answer

A slip knot is a type of knot that can 'slip' along the rope and can easily be untied by pulling one of the ends. This knot is easy to tie and commonly used in rock climbing, knitting, and securing loads on trailers. To tie a slip note, start by folding a loop under to make two loops, if you want the left side to slip, pass the left loop through the right loop. Tighten the slip knot by hand around the loop so it tightens evenly.
