    I’m so glad that this section has been added to the site! I’m often called upon to tie a knot, and find myself forgetting very easily. Even though I carry a guide to knots around, these tutorials were a lot easier for me to follow.

    Here are a few tips to knot tying sucess so you don’t forget as easily as me! :)

    -Always carry a book around, but don’ be afriad to spend a little money on the right one. I started with a black and white pocket guide that even my dad couldn’t make sense of! :) (If you can’t get the money, talk to a scout troop leader to see if someone could lend you a book for trips or meetings where you will need to tie knots.)

    -Ask for help! Can’t decipher a tricky knot? Ask an adult, older sibling, or friend to give you a hand. It won’t be that hard to ask once you get over the fear of “feeling dumb” in front of others. Everyone needs help once in a while.

    -Look for some feedback from other kids! Go on and other websites to hear other advice and perspectives on knot-tying from boys your age.

    really good help

  9. As the video guide noted, the clove hitch is the most widely used knot. This is indeed so. To perform a round lashing for a flagpole, one has to begin and end with clove hitches. The square and floor lashings used to build a camp table also begin and end with clove hitches. Tripod lashing to build a camp chair also begins and ends with clove hitches. These are just a few of the great many uses of clove hitches.

  10. this is way better than the drictions in the scout handbook!
