Another knot bit that keeps interest.
I first demonstrate a square knot -- "we all know that one . . . "
Then I demonstrate a sheep shank (tied by throwing three underhand loops,
stacking them and pulling out the middle) -- "and I think you can all tie
this one . . . "
"Now, let's put them together . . . " and I tie a square knot in the
middle of the sheep shank. Well, it's not actually a square knot but I
don't give them enough time to really figure that out. It looks like one
at first glance. Just enough to keep their attention!!
To do this, throw four underhand loops. Reach through two loops from each end
and pull out the third loop.
From the beginning . . . two loops make a clove hitch, three a sheep shank, and
four a sheepshank with a square knot in the middle!!
