    I'm glad to see this post pop-up again - it is good reference.
    I also use these simple lashings/jam knots; they are easily untied - 'not knots'.
    1) Hennessey lashing: http://hennessyhammock.com/media/C37/#content
    2) Jam knots: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4dMv6BtEPw
    Enjoying the simple things in life.

    Yosemite bowline!

    I love the bowline (step 1, 2 in image below) to make a quick loop at the end of a line, but with slippery zing-it it need more security.
    That is where the Yosemite finish (step 3, 4) comes in.
    Excellent! I'll have to remember that for slippery line.

    Thanks for this thread. It's been years since I consistently used knots so I'll admit I've neglected practice but this pumped me up to start practicing.

    Seriously, what a ton of work to compile.Thank you so much. Knots are obviously unendingly useful, and perfect for shaving weight off your pack. I love substituting hardware with knots! The more you know the less you carry. Thank you for the useful post.

    What a great thread! I was disappointed to find many of these knots missing from the Animated Knots by Grog app (for which I spent $5), but a YouTube Playlist gives me a quick review of all my favorites. I love knots! Just a "handful" lets you do so much in the woods, on a boat or anywhere at all. Thanks again for the great thread--subscribed!
