The square knot is one of the easiest knots to tie and a relatively quick knot to learn. It can temporarily tie to knots together but it is not recommended since the square knot is fairly insecure.

Step 1: Take two ropes and lie them side by side facing each other.

Step 2: Cross the ropes over each other.

Step 3: Bring the ends of the rope together and repeat steps 1 and 2.

Step 4. Pull the ends tight to secure the knot.
