Yet another innovative and easy tying tip from Jason Borger that requires no tools and is a handy alternative to whip-finishing.
Jason says, “This is the tying knot I first learned when I was a kid (thanks, dad!). It has served me well ever since (along with the whip finish). It also works nicely as a way to lock off the thread at certain points during more complex tying procedures. If you’ve (k)not used a double-hitch before, I think it’s worth learning and keeping in your tying skill-set.”
