We recently bought some 2mm rainbow/neon coloured satin cord. Partly to make a rope toy for our cat, Smoky. And partly so I could indulge my fondness for knots. Here are just a few examples, including the sheepshank. What is a sheep’s hank? I hear you ask. Visit your local butcher’s, I reply. He will know far better than I 🙂
For anyone needing a tad more etail, the knots in this gallery are the bowline, butterfly loop, zeppelin bend, sheepshank, figure eight loop, and two views of a three part, four bight turk’s head, also known as a ‘woggle’. Happy now?
