Clove hitch (thrown)

 
In this post I show how to throw the clove hitch with words, images and on video. We use the thrown clove hitch for example when we want to attach a line on a mooring post quickly while keeping it under tension.

Follow these steps to throw the clove hitch: Again, I tie a figure-eight knot in one end of the line as the moored part. I imagine this is a boat that I want to moor to a post, which is represented by my left thumb in this case. I place the moored part of the line along my left thumb …

… and secure it with my left forefinger. I take the loose part of the line in my right hand. I turn the line into a loop where the moored part lies above the loose part of the line.

I put the loop over the post and pull the imaginary boat towards me as close as possible.

Now I lay a second loop the same way as the first one …
