Hello this is Andrew Reynolds and today I'm going to show you how to make a Honda knot or just kind of a lasso knot, this is a lariat style of a lasso knot. Basically you take the very tip of your rope to start with and tie a very small overhand knot, just go under, make a loop under itself and then go right through and kind of hold on to that tip just barely and pull it tight. Now this is just kind of a stopping point in the rope so that when you make your Honda knot, your lariat, you'll be able to not have it come back through itself. So what you're going to do once you have that is take your rope and loop it under itself so that's you've got a little bit to work with there, a decent size loop. And then all you do from that point is you take your knotted rope there and place it through that knot and you got kind of a little pretzel shape going here but what you're going to want to do is take this now and place it inside that top hole that you just created. Now holding onto this, this last loop that you made is going to be how big your lariat is so this is the time when you'd want to pull on the knot if you need it to be a little bit bigger, of course you can thread your original rope through it and then just keep pulling until you have your desired length. And then once you have that in place, you can pull on that original knot as well to make sure that that's nice and secure. So that in it's essence is your Honda knot. A very lariat style lasso. Thanks for watching.
