Knots: More Than 50 of the Most Useful Knots for Camping, Sailing, Fishing, and Climbing
Peter Owen (au)
A knot is simply a connection in a thread, cord or length of rope formed either by passing one free end -- known as working end -- through a loop & drawing it tight or by intertwining or tying together pieces of thread, cord or rope. There are several quite distinct groups of knot -- hitches & bends, binding knots, stopper knots, knots that form nooses or loops & knots that join small lines together. The book: provides expert instruction on how to tie knots correctly & safely; gives full guidance on selecting the right knot for a specific situation; includes stopper knots, loops, hitches, shortenings, running knots, & angling knots; & features lots of useful information on rope technology. For each knot there are large detailed drawings that show every step in tying the knot.
