Re: Essential knots?

In addition to the usual suspects above, add the round-turn-and-two-halfhitches. This hitch should be used where many use the clove hitch, as the clove hitch can loosen itself if there's pull off the plane of the knot.

FWIW, the ASA 101 program includes these;
figure eight
clove hitch
sheet bend
square knot
bowline
round-turn-and-two-halfhitches
