    4. Clove hitch around an object with safety
    5. Becket or sheet bend with safety

    8. figure 8 follow through w/ safety
    9. figure 8 on a bite
    10. double loop figure eight w/ safety

    39 your link was corrupted. I second the GROG site though. Very good.

    You don't need to buy the disk to see the animations, but it would be a nice addition to any training library.

    Default try a Boy Scout

    Go to your local Boy Scout office and tell them you want to purchase a book on knots. They have all kinds plus you are supporting a good organization.

    Default animation all the way !!!

    If you can't learn knots after using animatedknots.com you'll never learn them.

    Awesome site, just found it yesterday from another post on here. My wife already thinks I'm goofy because I have a book of knots, wait till I tell her I spend a lot of time on a knot website.
