Hangman's Knot38 viewsThis knot needs no definition. It is made with eight or nine turns and not thirteen as is often superstitiously suggested. Apart from its obvious function, it is a useful knot for the end of a lanyard.RATKINSON

Ashley's Bend40 viewsA superb bend invented by C.W. Ashley. It is easy to tie, very reliable, one of the strongest bends and very easy to untie. The only minus is, that it is a bit bulky, but the appearance is still quite attractive. To tie: Follow the first diagram to create two interlocked loops. Then pass the ends of the ropes down the center part of the knot. Pull on the ropes to set the knot. RATKINSON

Carrick-Mat.jpg
2476 viewsThe Carrick mat is a knot. When woven flat it can be used as a mat or pad - as a hot pad, e.g. The same knot tied the same way, but allowed to form a cylinder around the central opening instead of laying flat, can be used to make a woggle.
