    This really needs a picture – Charlie Brumbaugh Sep 30 '17 at 20:07
  • Sounds like an overhand knot based in the description but that's not a very good way to tie something to a pole. A picture would help. – Qudit Sep 30 '17 at 22:35

    I am voting to close as unclear since there isn't a picture. – Charlie Brumbaugh Oct 1 '17 at 0:26
  • Qudit got it. I couldn't post a picture because I didn't know the name so I don't know how to google an image. – ParoX Oct 1 '17 at 14:18

    You can use a clove hitch, lark's head, two-half hitches, taughtline hitch, and timber hitch. Those are basic hitches, and of course, there are many others - not so basic. – Andrew Jennings Oct 4 '17 at 17:43

A hitch knot.

A hitch is a type of knot used for binding rope to an object.

You may be thinking of a clove hitch.

  • I'll second the clove hitch. – Zenon Oct 3 '17 at 1:15
  • Majority of the time this is the clove hitch, so yea. I'd vote for that one. – cwallenpoole Oct 6 '17 at 12:30

Sounds like it might be a bowline?
