1 Knot Master Program

2  Scouts can progress through the required knots, hitches, bends and lashings with a fun advancement program.  There are also decorative knots that can be tied for fun.  The scouts can earn different colored ropes similar to Karate belts.

3  Scouts are given a carabineer, advancement card and a white rope approximately 6 ft long.  Scouts put their name on the card.  Scouts are taught how to tie the carry knot so that the rope is easily carried.  As the scout learns a new knot and demonstrates it to an advanced member, the card is signed off for that knot.

4  Scouts that are able to tie all the knots for a color of rope can advance to the next color and next set of knots.  Scouts are to be able to demonstrate the knots at any time, so they should practice.  Scouts that achieve the black knot will be known as a knot master and are given a patch and are allowed to wear a black rope waggle.

5  Standing End = the end of the rope that is held and not used in tying the knot.  Working End = the end of the rope that is moved in tying the rope.  Bight = a loop made in the rope.  Knot = tying a rope to itself.  Hitch = tying a rope to another object.  Bend = tying a rope to another rope.  Lashing = tying 2 or 3 poles together.

6  Make a double bight in the rope starting at the standing end of the rope.  Wrap the working end around the bight from the end with one loop towards the two loops.  When the working end gets short, tuck it inside the two loop ends of the bights.  Pull the center bight to tighten the loops to secure the working end.
