Welcome to a Page of Various Knots
This section includes knots that were not essential in some other category. For example the new Gnat hitch has not yet found a place as a trusted knot in any category. The much older Cow Hitch is much better known bacause of its similarity to the Clove Hitch – but is also not regarded as essential elsewhere.
Recent Additions: The Siberian Hitch and the Boom Hitch have been added recently - at the request of visitors.
