Knots seem like magic to me. Generally if I tried to invent one, it would end up a tangle that immediately comes undone with a tug. Useless. Whereas a proper knot holds together beautiful. Here’s a video the ones in use for my tarp setup the other night.
There are 5 knots on show:
- Gnats hitch
- Siberian hitch (not Alaskan hitch)
- Prussick knot
- Truckers hitch
