How to Tie a Sheet Bend Rope Knot

RopeKnotLibraryBanner PROKNOT


The Sheet Bend is a useful rope knot for tying two ropes together, even when rope sizes and materials differ greatly. It is suitable for most non-critical applications. It is important that the tag (free) ends of both ropes of the sheet bend be on the same side of the finished knot. For more security use the doubled version (Becket Bend) which is the same as the single version but with an extra coil around the standing loop.

Find this rope knot on the PRO-KNOT Outdoor Knot Tying Instruction Cards, available at Bass Pro Shops website or at your local Bass Pro Shops store.

Step-by-Step Instructions to Tie the Sheet Bend Rope Knot

Step 1

Form a loop in the end of one rope. Pass the free end of the rope to be joined under the opening of the loop, around both parts of the first rope and back under itself.
