The Bowstring Knot, also called a Honda Knot is the loop knot commonly used in a lasso. Its round shape, especially when tied in stiff rope, helps it slide freely along the rope it is tied around.
To Tie a Bowstring Knot:
|Tie an Overhand Knot.|
|Bring the end of the rope around and back through the Overhand Knot, then tie an Overhand Knot in the end of the rope to act as a “stopper knot”.|
|Dress and set the knot.|
|You can feed the main line through the loop to form a lasso.|
