What Knot?

What Knot?
2

It was tempting to entitle this, \u201cYet Another Knot Book\u201d.
Because that is all it is, joining a great many other books,
documents, and web-sites available from throughout the
world. But what I was looking for was something that had
very clear diagrams, was downloadable for local printing,
and focussed on knots relevant to Australian scouting
activities. Finding nothing that suited, I decided to write it
myself. Whether or not I succeeded in these objectives is
for you to judge. But in the process I have enjoyed myself
immensely. I have always found knots an intriguing,
practical, and satisfying pastime. I hope that you do too.

What Knot?
Binding Knots

Binding knots are tied around objects to hold them together.
Use them for tying a bandage around a limb, clinching a sack closed, holding
the wrapping around a parcel, or holding the strands of a rope together.

Bends

Bends are to join two ropes together.
Use them for lengthening a rope by joining two shorter ones, or for joining the
two ends of a rope to make a loop.

Loops

Loop knots are for making one or more loops in the end of a rope, or along its
length. Unlike a noose, a loop does not become smaller under stress.
Use them for tying a rope around your waist, to create an attachment point
along a rope, or to make a loop to lob over a bollard.

Hitches

Hitches are to secure a rope to a fixed object.
Use them for tying a rope to a tree, or to a spar when starting or finishing a
lashing, or to secure a load to a trailer, or to tie onto another rope under
tension.
