A double sheet bend

The double sheet bend is a variation on the sheet bend. If the ropes that one wishes to join in a bend are of greatly different sizes, it may be necessary make the double sheet bend by putting the smaller one under itself twice (first at the bottom of the bight, second nearer the tip) instead of only once (as in a normal sheet bend).
