The Carrick bend is a knot used for joining two lines. It is particularly appropriate for very heavy rope or cable that is too large and stiff to easily be formed into other common bends. It will not jam even after carrying a significant load or being soaked with water. The Carrick bend's aesthetically pleasing interwoven and symmetrical shape has also made it popular for decorative purposes.
- "The Carrick Bend joins two ropes together. It used to be widely used to join large hawsers."
- The Double carrick bend is one of the Forty knots.
