Fancy Knots & Ropework 101 - Series

The knots and splices described below are all more for practical use than ornament, although such shortenings as the Single and Double plaits, the
Chain knots, the Twofold, Fourfold, and Sixfold knots, and others are often used for ornamental purposes only. A certain class of knots are,
however, really ornamental and seldom serve to fasten two ropes together, or to make any object fast to another. They are, however, very useful in
many ways, especially aboard ship, and they are so handsome and interesting that every one interested in rope work should learn to make them.

Thank you for posting all of the knot downloads I was just thinking about buying a knot tying book
You are most welcome. I liked it because the pics were easy to follow. Don't forget to check the whole series of knots files. Cheers, Herne

Another good knot and rope book is Ash's book of knots, which was the British sailor's
bible for many, many years... I got mine off of the Gutenburg project.
