    Here's a really good link for learning how to tie knots: http://www.animatedknots.com/indexba...matedknots.com

    The icons at the top are the knot categories. HTH

    As to the application of all knots, keep this in mind.

    A neat knot, knotted neatly, is a neatly knotted knot. While a neat knot, not knotted neatly, is not a neatly knotted knot. Just sayin'.............

    If you need/want to make your own hammock, here are the 2 knots I use on 3 1/2 or 4 yards X 60" of nylon (no sewing at all):

    First, I make a loop in the rope by using the 'double fisherman bend':

    Then make your hammock ends:

    Then hang the hammock using Hennessey lashing and take a nap.

    I use angler's knots when I need a loop. Somehow my bowlines always seem to slip on me and angler's stay put. User error, I know.
