Lariat Loop

Lariat LoopUsage: The Lariat Loop or Honda Knot is is often used by cowboys for making a lariat to lasso cattle and horses. Its round shape, especially when tied in stiff rope, helps it slide freely along the rope it is tied around. The working end, fed through the overhand can be seized or knotted to keep it from working loose. A lariat is formed by feeding the main rope back through the Lariat Loop.
