How to tie the Sheet Bend

The Sheet Bend is not the most secure bend, but it's usually pretty good. If you know how to tie the Bowline, then you already know how to tie the Sheet Bend. If you are joining two lines of different diameter or stiffness, make the loop out of the thinner/more flexible line, and the collar out of the thicker/stiffer line.
