The Burlington Bowline

Posted on Sun, 12 January 2014

As Nina and I have been looking more closely at alternative ways of finishing the single column tie and how to teach the standard Japanese version, I was intrigued to see yet another solution from Tracker from the Vermont Rope Boundage group. He has addressed the notorious habit of Boola Boola type knots to collapse in a way I find easier than the Somerville.

I'm still undecided which of the solutions I prefer. I'm biased towards mine as it is only an extra twist on top of what I usually do. To be fair, I need to commit the competing solutions to muscle memory to make a comparison. See what you think of Tracker's Burlington Bowline.
