Double Sheet Bend


The double sheet bend is used to tie two ropes of different diameters together. The double sheet bend is a regular sheet bend with an extra twist, but It's still a variation on the square knot, and as such I would trust it with my gear but not with my life. One use for the double sheet bend is to tie a pull cord to a rappelling rope.
