This is one knot I can reliably do…we taught this one at Cub Scouts last year.

Reef knot – left over right and then under, right over left and then under.

Use this to tie a rope around an object (e.g. a tree). Apparently it shouldn’t  be used to tie two ropes together  because it has the potential to become unstable.

Here is a picture of the handy dandy reef knot I just tied. Unfortunately I can’t upload videos via WordPress so I made a youtube channel and you’ll have to check out my video here:
