"Archer's Knot": youtube.com/watch?v=vXu3NgWHMv

A really handy knot where the loop stays fixed /w tension on the standing end, and the working end can be cinched to shrink the loop.

Fun fact: this knot seems to be the complement of the Arbor Knot (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbor_kn), where standing end tension cinches the loop & the working end doesn't.

Also, handy rope terminology that really helped me out: ropebook.com/information/knots


@tty got any resources on learning to tie knots for beginners


@vanillacherry This seems like a good set of basic knots: youtube.com/watch?v=fvh_LWBaom thought animatedknots.com/ , which @tty references, is very down on the clove hitch.
