KNOT: THE UNI KNOT

the Uni Knot is possibly the easiest knot to tie, in fact so easy you don't have to look at it to tie which is great if you've forgotten your glasses. It has never failed me personally in over 20 years of use. If it has a downfall it is that it is too easy to learn and therefore quite hard to master.

Easy!
