I decided to inject as much connotation and context as I could into a process that is used universally. After tying several of my own knots, I realized the number of times you loop the string/rope it is arbitrary. I decided to explore this idea of intense arbitrariness by showing the steps of tying a slip knot with several loops until the end shows the knot being undone with a simple tug of one end.
