We’re going to keep going with our series on knots. This time it’s going to be the bowline (pronounced Boh-lin) and the slipknot. It’s two for Tuesday after all. Again, these are pretty simple knots but useful. A lot of these will be part of more complicated stuff we will get into soon.
First, let’s start with the bowline.
Here’s a quick video on it as well.
Now, let’s tackle the slipknot.
The how-to video below.
Now, we can’t talk about the slipknot without squeezing in a little video of the best slipknot ever, brought to you by the Grateful Dead and one of their all-time great between-songs transitions. Help on the Way –> Slipknot –> Franklin’s Tower.
