Answer to last week’s quiz

3 March

 

 

 

 

 

They may look the same i.e. a sheet bend knot tied differently. However, he knot on the right is a sheet bend but the one on the left is a bowline (below) !

Did you guess correctly ?

 

 

 


The sheet bend is used for tying two lines/ropes of different thickness together. (The loop on the the right hand side is made in the thicker rope).
The bowline is a very useful non-slip loop.
