Re: Essential knots?

Square knot for tying two pieces of equal size line together you can't beat it

Bowline for tying a line around... well anything

Two Half Hitches for when a knot that slips is needed

Those would probaby be the three I would show a begginer. Altough I know some "sailors" who don't know any knot but the "tie a bunch of granny knots in a row" knot, and they get their boats from point A to point B... But that's neither here nor there.
