The Bowline Knot is the most useful way to make a loop in the end of a rope. It is better than the more common loop knot because it is easy to untie, even when the rope is wet. It also has a mnemonic for tying it — the rabbit (end of the rope) comes out of the hole (overhand loop), runs around the tree (standing rope), and goes back down the hole.
