Clothes Line Hang

Always carry a handful of cord loops. One use for these loops is to hang and dry clothes. See here for knot terminology.

Steps are as follows:

  1. Take two loops (joined with square/reef knot), roughly 3 inches in diameter. Longer is ok.
  2. Tie them to the line with a simple cow hitch or to grip the line, use a prusik or klemheisht hitch.
  3. Twist the loop back on itself to make a pair of loops – another (empty) cow hitch.
  4. Find a couple of small stones ~1/2 inch diameter.
  5. Holding them against what you want to hang, push the cloth and stone through the pair of loops.
  6. Cinch tight.
