Making Effective Knots Made Simple

Feel like you are all thumbs when it comes to doing knots?  You are definitely not alone!

As outdoor enthusiasts, we all know that we need to do knots with our ropes for everything from camping to fishing and survival.  It is obviously important when out in the wilderness to ‘know your knots’.

Know your knots 2First of all we all wish we knew more about doing effective knots.  Often knowing which knot to use for each situation can be a challenge.  Which knot is best for which situation?

The other difficulty is knowing HOW to do these knots correctly.  Even following someone else can sometimes be confusing as not everyone can explain things well.

So wouldn’t it be good to have something you could refer to and follow easily?  Kinda ‘Know your Knots 101’.

Knots are something we come across in everyday life, from tying your laces to putting on a tie, but what are some of the simplest, easiest to learn knots that can help you out while out camping, hiking, fishing or even sailing! Here you can check out a very cool infographic on some of the top knots for each situation, how to tie them and what you’re likely to use them for!

Sarah Brown from http://www.ptwinchester.co.uk/ has shared this very useful resource below:

Know your knots:

To conclude, the key to know your knots is to practice the ones you think you will need most.  The knots you choose will naturally depend on the type of outdoor activity you are doing.  Therefore practice, practice, practice…

Most of all keep this knowledge with you when you are out in the great outdoors because you never know when you might need it the most!

    This is just fabulous. I always have trouble with knots while my partner is a genius at them and I just leave it to him. But, what would I do without him?? is a genuine Q. This will help me conquer my knot-tying challenges. thanks

      It never hurts to be non-reliant on others and build independent skills, that’s for sure.

    I did learn about all the knots when I was a cub scout but had completely forgotten. This guide and illustrations to knot tying and knowing knots is perfect. It is very important to know which knot is suitable for which situation too.

    This is fantastic, my daughter started learning knots at cubs on Wednesday night. This brings back a lot of memories from being in Scouts. I’ll have to refresh my knowledge!

    This is so useful. Whenever I make a knot it either ends up opening very easily or not opening at all 🙂 Now I will try some of these ways, I hope they will work well

    I am seriously in awe! I never knew anything about knots. During an instance.our car got stuck in mud at the beach and due to a wrong knot, we have dent on the back door of our four wheel. The rope literally broke with great force when another car was teying to pull our car out of the puddle. This is so informative. Thanks for sharing.

    When I was a kid… I went FLY FISHING… And before fishing we had to learn some basic knots. My family thought I wasn’t paying attention… So when the fishing instructor asked for a volunteer to do one of the hard knots, my family said GIGI DO IT —- and um, I PROVED THEM WRONG 😉 I will always remember that, LOL! Felt awesome !

    This is awesome! Although, my idea of camping is more like glamping. LOL! But, this is such a great thing that everyone needs to know.
