And/or search for "animated knots" in Google Video.

Wasnt sure from the homepage why you posted that - but when you get to the actual knot pages it is very impressive:
they arent gifs, but it cycles through the steps of the knot -
you can vary the speed, you can invert, mirror, or rotate the whole set of images. Very well done :up:

Nice! I was just thinking recently that it would be nice to learn a few basic knots.  :up:

Until I saw the puns I feared this thread would be for naught.

Puns, what puns? This may come as noose to you but according to the panel you made a slip.

Thanks for the website, Giampy.

The images are so clear and simple that understanding a knot is knot a problem.
It will help my son to learn and tie his own tie next time.

Regards,

Anand

Well I'm no Boy Scout nor am I Richard Kimble.  Speaking of which a video of The One Armed Man(tm) tying knots might be interesting.  :)

It's probably a compound knot.  That just looks like a double-line hitch.  It would be nice if they told you "hey- tie a double line hitch right here- see here for instructions." or something similar.

Update: It's a Figure-Eight Loop: http://www.southee.c....htm#FigureEightLoop

Notice that on a karash double loop they do the same thing- but direct you to the Figure-Eight Loop to tie that part: http://www.southee.c...nots_DoubleLoops.htm

Yeah, those pics are kind of like step by step instructions for painting the Mona Lisa.  Step 1 blank canvas.  Step 2 portrait complete paint dry.  :)

I'm having a hard time following this one:

ah yeah, that does sort of jump from zero to 100 ;D

That's a knot that's used for climbing with rope and harness/belt (also with a carabiner).
I had a brief spell attempting to climb walls with a friend - I did learn that knot, but dont know if I could reproduce it now.**
The video doesnt help any - I wonder is that knot described elsewhere and they forgot to let us know about it.

** It is very important that the two strands dont 'overlap' each other. I *think* that's what they're trying to say in the last image ["Wrong"]: "a kink in the standing end is an error" - but I couldnt be sure there (standing end? - I never did learn the 'knots' vocabulary...)

It seems armless enough to me.

I guess you could say the villain single-handedly kept the audience tied to their TV sets.
