Double a piece of rope over, forming a loop at the top, which we'll call end A.
With the rope still doubled, form another loop, creating an X where the rope crosses itself. The section of rope closest to end A should be passing under the other section, from top left to lower right of the X.
Hold the X with your left hand.
Use your right hand to poke end A into the hole.
Pull on end A and tighten the knot.
