Hitches, Loops, Bends & Bindings
Tie 5, tie 10, or learn to tie them all! With 40 Knots to Know, everyone's an expert!

Meet the "Fab Five" including the figure eight, bowline, sheet bend, and two half hitches. Discover why the common square knot is good in a bind but bad as a bend.

Be Prepared to tie a bowline loop fit for a rescue, use lashings to construct a flagpole or backyard tent, build a shelter using the taut-line hitch - and tie a perfect surgeon's knot every time you try!

Create knots for fun and function! Make the marvelous monkey's fist, do the loopty-loop with the alpine butterfly, and learn to whip, shorten, and coil rope in a jiffy.

Includes the knots, lashings, and loops required for Scouts, sailors, campers, and other cool people!
