Welcome to Animated Knots by Grog

World #1 Knot Site. Better to know a knot and not need it, than need a knot and not know it.

Animated Knots by Grog™


Welcome: This website started in 2005, derived from the family website and originally intended to show just the essential knots. Frequent requests and suggestions led to more categories and many more knots. The May 2017 update introduces more features. Drop Down Menus appear above every page and the Animation Pages show Controls which fade away. Many other changes have been made including new colors and new material. As always, suggestions and comments are welcomed.


Apps Updated: All of our Apps are now updated to Version 6 and now include several additions such as: Farrimond, Boom Hitch, Stronger Soft Shackle, Four Strand Braids, and French Sinnets. Updates are free provided you use the same account or have the original instructions. Visit our Store for details about our Apps for iPhones, iPods, iPads, Android phones, and Windows and Mac computers.
