Two Half Hitches

Two Half Hitches is made by making two overhand knots ("half hitches") in sequence. These two overhand knots will create a Clove Hitch around the rope itself.
 
So,  you will have an adjustable loop that however will be hard to open again, after the knot has been under tension.
 
It is one of the easiest/safest knots there is and everybody should know how to make it.
 
Let the rope run left/right or right/left around an item. You decide.
 
Put the short end OVER the long end.
 
...and lead it back UNDER the long end again.
 
Voila! Now you have made the first half of the knot! Now repeat!
 
And you have Two Half Hitches!
 
It should look like this!
