Is there supposed to be a video here that isn't loading? I only see this link http://www.animatedknots.com/reef/
That's all there is.
The mnemotechnic I use is "same end, same direction"
In the Animation linked above:
1. the red end goes first over the blue end to create the first "twist".
2. the red end goes first over the blue end to go through the final loop
Hope it helps others.
thanks, this helps break it down easy :)!
Mine's much the same: Left over Right and under, Right over Left and under. I put it here because it insists which end goes under: I recall someone quoting your way and then reversed one "under", producing a granny.
I've always heard "Right over left, left over right, makes your knot both tidy and tight"
Quite easy this one. 3 self ties (my woman is gone for work atm [tears]) and I feel like an expert. Yeah, good video....want a fan of the girls instructions with the green rope.
There should probably be some prose about how this knot can collapse into a larks head and slide if you use the tail of one side in another element that is under tension. There is a reason this is not used to terminate a single column.
