You may have a blood clot if your vein is swollen and is forming a knot. It is important to have that checked out since a blood clot can go to your heart and cause severe damage.

How do you tie a square knot?

The square knot is a wonderful knot for tying two pieces of string or rope together to form one. With one end of rope in each hand cross the right hand string over and under the left so that the left hand string is now in the right hand and vice-versa. Now, cross the left hand string over the right and under and tighten. So, i repeat, right over left and under, then, left over right and under. See this URL: It's a great illustration of the knot!

How do you you untangle a knot with one hand?

If a line is tangled, you most likely cannot undo it with one hand. However, if is a knot that needs to be undone, many knots can be undone with one hand. If a knot is "slipped", which means it has an end that will release it, the slipped end is pulled. This is the way you untie shoelaces, which are tied with a double slipped square knot. If the knot is not slipped, the next easy way to undo it is to "spill" the knot. Depending upon the type of knot, this usually requires two hands. To spill the knot, a section that looks like a loop is pushed or pulled in the direction away from the load which will either loosen the knot or release it. If a knot cannot be spilled or slipped, it will require 2 hands and can be difficult, sometimes also requiring a tool.

How do you tie a rope in a knot without letting go of the rope?

You fold your arms, then hold either end with your hands. Then, unfold your arms, and ta-da, a knot. * Added - In addition to the Overhand Knot that can be awkwardly made with folded arms, a Slip Knot can be made with one hand more easily and faster. With the rope laying on the ground, slide your right hand under the rope from the right, then turn your hand to the right, over the rope again. This forms a loop. Now, reach down and back toward yourself to grab the rope part closest to you - wriggle your hand to pull a small loop and let the rest of the rope fall from your hand - You are now holding the loop of a Slip Knot! With practice, this knot can be made in this method in one second! The fastest and easiest knot made without ever letting go, and it's made with one hand!

How do you tie a knot without letting go?

This is an old camp fire riddle... to do it, fold your arms in front of your chest, hold one end of the rope in each hand, when you pull the rope will make an over hand knot. -------------- The fastest knot that can be tied without letting go is tied in the center of a rope, a Slip Knot. It is also one of very few knots that can be easily tied with one hand. Reach underneath the rope with right hand, raise hand and go to the right and over the now sagging part of the rope, reach back to the sagging part closest to you and grab it and pull it through the loop you created. This is a Slip Knot and can be made in less than a second with practice.
