Knots, Bends and Hitches

Knots, Bends and Hitches

A Knot is the generic name for any loop or entanglement of flexible material, created either intentionally or accidentally, by a tucked end or bight. the word also has a very precise meaning : a knot, as distinct from a bend or hitch, secures two ends of the same material, e.g., a bandage, parcel string or shoelace. in addition, a small stuff - thus all angler's knots are by definition merely knots, irrespective of form or function.

A bend is a knot that joins two separated ropes or others bits of cordage together

A hitch attaches a line to a rail, post,ring or perhaps to another rope (or even onto itself)

there is often more than one way to tie complex knots and knot enthusiasts bore and bewilder if they insist on showing them all. this blog illustrates one quick and easy way to learn and use each knot, only showing alternative methods where these are needed to cope with different circumstances.
