Hangman's Knot37 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

Ladderlashing Knot35 viewsLadder lashing allows for a quick and secure method for constructing a ladder or for constructing a decking with evenly space decking pieces. This form of lashing has several advantages over the traditional floor lashing. Less material is required because unlike floor lashing a space can be left between each piece of the decking. Also, each rung is securely lashed in place by several loops of rope in much the same way as a square lashing; with the traditional floor lashing only a single loop of the rope holds each end of the decking in place, therefore if one piece loosens, the entire deck loosens. The ladder lashing has two forms; left and right, each is a mirror image of the other. RATKINSON

Sailor's Hitch33 viewsDraws up without working to form a strong, secure hitch that will not jam. It may be used as a way to tie a smaller rope to a very large rope. (The smaller rope should pull left when tied as shown here.) Push a bight through the final tuck to form a Slipped Sailor's Hitch.RATKINSON

ladderlashing2.jpg
Ladderlashing Knot32 viewsSTART: The ladder lashing is started by using a clove hitch stopped with two half hitches to secure a rope to the top end of each rail.
STEP 1: Lay an overhand loop over each side rail so that the running end of each loop is to the outside.
STEP 2: Place a rung across the rails so that the standing part of each overhand loop is over the end of the rung and the running part of each overhand loop is under the rung.
STEP 3: Pull the running part side of each overhand loop behind and to the outside of each rail.
STEP 4: Then pull the loop over the end of the rung.
