Lark’s Head Single Column

This one of the most popular single-column ties.  It is a reverse-tension single column knot that is attractive, lies relatively flat and is very secure.

This is the starting point for the standard crotch rope and several other chest and waist/hip ties.

Pros:  Very common and well known, properly applied, it is very secure.

Cons:  Requires 2 to 3 tail pulls, making it take a little longer to apply. (On the other hand, if you like to put on a show, this can be a great opportunity…)

For this tie, I used one 10′ (~3m) piece of Natural 6mm provided by my affiliate Twisted Monk.

Check them out for some amazing hemp rope!
