Knots Made Easy: The Rolling Hitch

This valuable hitch can be used to tie a line to the standing part of another line or to a spar. It’s especially useful when you need to transfer the load from one line to another – remember that winch override? It’s similar to the clove hitch but with an extra turn on the side that’s in the direction the load will be applied.

This knot works best (bites better) when the diameter of the working line is smaller than that of the standing line.
