The first of presumably not too many posts about tying knots. Pretty much everything is said in the video, but for those that learn better from reading, here’s written instructions:
Clove Hitch: Working end is left, bit is right. Wrap around a post, left goes under right. Loop over the bit and around the post, then pull through and under the “wrap-around” you just made with the working end.
Cross Lash: Make a clove hitch on a post, put the other at 90 degrees and over the vertical post, then loop behind the vertical, over the horizontal, behind the vertical, over the horizontal 3 times. Then do the reverse three times (ie: in front of the vertical and behind the horizontal), then tie another clove hitch on one of the post
X Lash: Clove hitch, then wrap over and under and over and under the two 5-6 times, then another clove hitch.
A short article this week, because not much needs to be said beyond what has been written.
