Troop 7 How to Tie Knots


Sheet Bend

??The sheet bend is the most important knot for joining two rope ends, especially if the ropes are of different sizes. Sailors named it in the days of sailing ships when they would "bend" (tie) the "sheets"' (ropes in the rigging of a ship).

??Begin with a bight in the larger rope. THen weave the end of the smaller rope p thrgh the eye, around the bight, and back under itself. Snug it carefully before applying any strain to the knot.
