HOW TO TIE KNOTS – SPANISH BOWLINE

The Spanish Bowline contains two adjustable loops, joined by the same rope. It was originally used as a rescue knot, where the person being rescued would hold on to the loops while the rescuer would pull on the two standing parts.
The Spanish Bowline could be used for various purposes as long as the load on the loops is equal to avoid slipping. Considering the loops are directly connected to each other, you can adjust the loop sizes before putting them under pressure.
