Knot Booklet

Hi,
I have recently finished writing a Knot Booklet, while I admit to not being a Defender owner, I do have a 1975 Range Rover and always have a rope in the back. This got me into knots and hence the Knot Booklet.

The Booklet is distributed under the Creative Commons License. So no charge.
Not sure in which section to post it. Please move it as you see fit.


I attach link so you may have a look.

Thanks for the thumbs up!

If anyone spots a typo/error please let me know. Still polishing the booklet.
All diplomatically phrased constructive criticism considered.

Wondering if anyone else has downloaded the Knot Booklet?
Fair amount of work has gone into it, if you liked it please say so.

I liked it. I always wish I had more knots at my disposal.

I always use two knots, the simple noose as you call it (I learned it as the trucker's hitch) and two half hitches to secure any load. It gives me as much peace of mind as any ratchet strap

Not sure if ebooks have new editions or just get updates. Calling it 2.0

Changes include adding the following knots: Water Knot, Carrick Bend, Highwayman's Hitch and Tumble Hitch.
Also added drawings of the Constrictor Knot in the Bight and the Shear Lashing,
+ drawings showing how to join Slings and Recovery Straps and a little info/drawing on Slipped Hitches.
Have also polished the text a little.

Link on first post updated to this version.

Let me know what you think.

Damn, that's awesome. I've always sucked at knots but I think I can follow this. I'm going to save your PDF to my iPad along with all of my workshop manuals.

One addition that I think would be useful is a table that lists different use cases and the knots that can be used for each (in order of preference). I often find myself needing a knot for some task but not knowing where to start or what knot I should be using.

Just received a Happy Birthday email.
No candles, but if there were and had I managed to blow them all out, my wish ... download the Knot Booklet and enjoy.

If anyone thinks this Knot Booklet deserves a Sticky ... do say so.

Excellent, no nonsense book, thanks for the PDF link. I was impressed with the friction knot section!

Just a heads up to say that the Knot Booklet is still available at the original link, and it is now at version 2.2

Two ropes walk by a bar and the one rope says to the other, "Wait here, I'm going to go get a drink".

Bartender takes one look at the rope and says, "Sorry, don't serve your kind here."

The rope walks out and his friend asks, "Where's your drink?" He explains what happened and his friend say, "You need a disguise." He bunches up his head, tassels his hair, and says, "Try that".

The rope walks back into the bar and asks again for a drink. The bartender looks at him and asks, "Hey, haven't I seen you before?"

The rope looks at him and says, "'Fraid not". (Frayed knot).
