Reeving Line Bend

Frequently it is necessary to bend together two lines that must reeve around a capstan or winch drum. The best knot for this purpose is the reeving line bend. It consists of taking a half hitch with the end of each line around the standing part of the other and seizing the bitter ends. Make sure the seizing’s are tight; otherwise, the knot might pull out.
