    HF's Hammock Hangers Essential Knot Guide

    If this has been done then the mods can delete this post.

    We should develop an essential knot guide for this obsession. We can contribute as a group by individually posting our favorites. If you like the idea post some entries.

    If the notion gets legs I'll do an inventory of contributions and query the forum for "entry" and for standards. many videos by various members already have some useful stuff as do other YouTube posters. I figure if there's enough interest we can put together a HF version that is indexed with video examples.

    Suggestions:

    Use classic names
    If a knot is a popular variation of a classic, give both names.
    We should develop categories of rope as a standard.

    What I'm looking for is a post like this:

    "larks head
    Figure 8
    Square knot
    Jam knot
    Marlin spike
    Surgeons knot
    Overhand knot
    Bow line
    Slippery hitch
    Prussic
    Ridge line knot
    Overhand knot
    Overhand loop knot
    Bloodline knot
    Diamond knot"

    Etc.

    If you like the idea, post something.

    P.S. I'm preparing for an upcoming trial and need a diversion.

    Cheers
