Here I will collect information about knots. For an explanation of the terms used, please consult the glossary.
Some may argue that tying knots is not a craft. Ok, try it then :-)
- Bight - the bight refers to the middle of the rope. A knot that is "tied in the bight" does not need an end of the rope to be tied.
- Standing part - the end of the rope you are not working with
- Turn - a loop, as formed when "turning" the rope once around something
- Working end - the end of the rope you are working with
