    I could really do with a booklet on the best knots as they are useful to learn in every day life not just in the outdoor world. If something as simple as towing your car, it is really useful to learn how to tie a good solid know that holds up to the strain.

    Thanks to cariocarj01, kelpie13, AllTru, mrcharly, Leshy, Statts, bigbush, and Pepper16 (first post of 2017)

    Kitharode, thanks for the help
    Robi, hope you found it useful

    Fig 18 Ashley #1010 is considered to be the base 'bowline'.
    Ashley was unimpressed by the Left-Hand Bowline, hence the odd numbering he gave it #10341/2

    This is really good. In my day and time, there were just books in a bookstore.
    I got lucky in a bookstore and found Des Pawson's KNOTS: The Complete Visual Guide.
    I could still use a simple list of 24 knots, just a list, that might be used for many things.
    I can name and tie maybe a dozen. Everybody should be able to do better than I.
