    while most people know of the knot, many do not know how to properly tie the knot with ease. i think it will be a valuable addition to your wonderful site.

          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.

              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.
