Matthew Walker Knot

This is another decorative knot that requires separating the rope you're working with into three strands.

1 Begin the Matthew Walker Knot by making a Wall Knot, tucking each end up through the next bight.

2 Continue by making another tuck.

3 Snug down by pulling each of the strands repeatedly.

Another way to tie the Matthew Walker Knot is to lay the strands in successive Overhand Knots.

1 Use one strand to make an Overhand Knot.

2 Continue making Overhand Knots with each consecutive strand.

As you pull on the strands to tighten the knot, make sure you do it gradually and evenly.
