Half hitch is named as “work horse of knot tying” by some authors . Half hitches may be stacked on each other to create a non-sliding knot or may also be used to secure both locking and non-locking sliding knots. Half hitches can be formed in two different configurations: a loop limp tied under the post limb (underhand half hitch) and a loop limb tied over the post limb (overhand limb).
