Tying knots is fun. Moose teaches a bunch of knots like the taut-line hitch, the square knot, or the bowline. With the bowline you can’t get it undone by pulling one part of the rope. The slip knot is another knot that is fun to show to your friends. When you pull it in the right place it will undo. The bowline knot won’t come undone when you pull the rope. The fisherman’s knot is good for holding onto a piece of rope or tying a hook. The figure eight knot looks like the number “8.” The square knot is easy to undo, because it has a “safety latch,” but it takes practice to undo it right. Moose always brings ropes for us to tie with!
