Thumb Knot (Overhand Knot)

Thumb Knot image

  • This is the simplist knot of all. It is commonly use to temporarily "stop" the end of a fraying rope.
  • The overhand knot is commonly tied in a bight formed at the end of a rope, forming the Overhand Loop.

Tip: The Thumbknot jams easily so it is far better to use a Figure of Eight knot to stop the end of a fraying rope.

Pearls of Wisdom

  • A boy on joining wants to begin Scouting right away.
  • A fisherman does not bait his hook with food he likes. He uses food the fish likes. So with boys.
  • Scouting is a man’s job cut down to a boy’s size.
  • Scouting is a game for boys under the leadership of boys under the direction of a man.
