Introduction: Knot Guide

A few simple and popular knots to use; camping, surviving, boating, and surviving from zombies and many other uses.

I would like to thank Instructables for the Red Paracord that they provided me with from the Survivor Skills Challenge.  Check it out here https://www.instructables.com/contest/survival/ Mine is the Deadfall.

Step 1: Bowline Knot

This knot is for making a loop, this loop will neither tighten nor loosen.

Step 2: Reef Knot (Square Knot)

This is a very popular knot, which can be used to secure a rope or line around an object or join two ropes together but this isn't the best option.

Step 3: Single Figure of Eight Knot

This knot is used create a loop in the rope. 

Step 4: Joining Ropes

If you're in the need to join two types of ropes together, this is the best way because it is tight and secure.

Have you done something odd to the photos? It's quite hard to tell which bight is on top and which is under.

I edited them around a bit, trying to achieve a bright photo with a white background

Hmm...

Maybe draw over the edges to make them stand out?

I could probably increase the shadows since i decreased them in the editing.
