True-Lovers-Knot.jpg
6520 viewsThe true lover's knot is the name for several knots, including the Middleman's knot, Fisherman's knot and Shamrock knot. The most popular version, the Middleman's knot, is actually a bend created by interlacing the loops from opposing overhand knots with the opposite line. This knot is very similar to a two stranded Matthew Walker's knot, the difference being that in Matthew Walker's knot the standing ends and the working ends are on the same sides, and in this knot they are opposed.pydavies

Tautline Hitch61 viewsUsed as a hitch, which may be drawn up away from what it is looped around to tighten a line.
Since it will only slide one way, the Taut-line hitch is often used on tent ropes. The taut-line hitch will hold firmly on a smooth pole such as a scout stave. Place rope end around pole, make a turn below it, then bring rope up across the standing part around the pole and tuck through.

Shoelace-knot.jpg
141 viewsShoelaces can be tied with almost any type of knot. The most common bow, however, is a variant on two half knots tied one on top of the other. The second half-knot is looped in order to allow for quick untying.

It's important that the two half knots be performed with opposite orientation in order to produce a reliable knot. A right-over-left half knot followed by a left-over-right half knot (or vice versa) forms a square or reef knot, a fairly effective knot for the purpose of tying shoelaces. However, t

Matthew-Walker-Knot.jpg
2630 viewsA Matthew Walker knot is a decorative knot that is used to keep the end of a rope from fraying. It is tied by unraveling the strands of a twisted rope, knotting the strands together, then laying up the strands together again. It may also be tied using several separate cords, in which case it keeps the cords together in a bundle.pydavies
