Blackwall Hitch Knot

The "Blackwall Hitch" is simple and easy to make and merely consists of a loop, or cuckold's neck, with the end of rope passed underneath the standing part and across the hook so that as soon as pressure is exerted the standing part bears on the end and jams it against the hook.
