Knot Tying 1

This honour gets you started with knots that you’ll use for the rest of your life.

You’ll learn about ropes and how to care for them.  Terms such as bight, bend, standing part, running end, turn, loop and whipping will be familiar to you.

You’ll know how to tie basic knots such as Granny knot, Square knot, Overhand knot, Clove hitch and Bowline.  Then there’s common knots – Carrick bend, Figure Eight, Fisherman’s knot, Prussik knot, Sheepshank, Sheet bend, and Timber hitch to name some.

Best of all, you’ll use your creativity to make a knot board to display your handiwork.
