If you find that the wrap knot defeats you, a series of half-hitches can be used instead.
To tie a half-hitch, follow steps 2 to 6, then the first part of step 13, of the wrap knot sequence. Do this at least three times (forming three half-hitches with the loop pulled through completely each time) then finish off as described in the last two parts of step 13.
