This knot is used to join two strands of greatly unequal diameter together.
To Tie a Double Surgeon’s Knot:
|Place the two lines parallel, with ends pointing in opposite directions. Using the two lines as a single strand, make a simple overhand knot, pulling the two strands all the way through the loop, and then make another overhand knot.|
|Holding both strands at each end, pull the knot tight and clip off the ends.|
