Practice how to tie knots – www.folsoms.net/knots
All cubs need to learn the
- Reef Knot (Square knot)
- Sheet bend and
- Clove hitch
Also useful (for erecting tents) is the Two Half Hitches, but with a round turn added first, as mentioned on the site.
When you are sure of the Reef Knot, you need to do it 3 times without a mistake, then 3 times with eyes closed, then 3 times behind your back before you will be passed.
